    What is the value of a Colt Detective Special serial number 396274, nickle plated, in original box with pamphlet (Colt special instructions on cleaning, etc),condition is excellent, appears to have been fired very little.

    With no pics it makes it hard to determine but from what I am seeing 425.00 to 1200.00. Seems like they made a few though dont no why (unless its cause its a colt) they are so high.

    if there are no letters before or after the serial number it was born 1930/31 if in the condition you describe it's worth between 750 and 1200. colt revolvers are highly sought after and prized. they bring right now 30 to 50% over book value. check out some auction sites or visit the colt forum for an eye opening experience there are countless listings backing up my post about the prices being sky-high.
