    I have a Star Super A it is marked 38. There are no import marks that I can find. What year produced serial number is 884xxx. What is a fair price for it. 90% condition. Blue is unmarked and not wore, no pitting in bore.

    Oh come on, I gotta eat meals and go to the bathroom occasionally!

    Star A Super = 9mm Largo/38ACP. Note this is 38ACP, and NOT 38 Super. There were a lot of these imported by Sam Cummings back in the 1950s and 1960s, and distributed by Interarms in the 1970s into 1980s. Plus a bunch more are comming in now (SARCO). Based on the serial number, it was made around 1966 or 1967. There should be a year date code somewhere on the left side of your frame - it will be a letter, or a letter and 1, with "*" over it. It will likely be "L1" or "M1". Also, look very closely under the front of the frame and the web guard area - sometimes the import marks are very small and not noticable.

    Sorry to say your value is not that great since so many of these are coming in again. It would be $160 to $180. If you have an original Interarms import box (red colored lid) serial numbered to the gun, you can ad $50.
