      Colt model 1903 hammerless pocket model

      I am trying to find out how much this Colt 32 is worth. I have seen pricing from $200-2000. Some sites refer to Type I, II and III but I don't know what I have. Can anyone help me with the pricing or tell me how I should figure its worth?

      Um, a picture might help.
      Several pictures, actually.

      If my old eyes are reading the serial number correctly, you have a Type III that was made in 1922.
      History? Click on: 1903 Colt Model M

      Approximate value: Between $500.00 and $1,000.00.
      If the bore is excellent, and the small amount of holster wear I see in your pictures is all that's affecting the blued metal, the value is closer to $1,000.00 than it is to $500.00.
      If I were buying it (which I won't, since I have no use for a .32 pistol) I'd offer you $650.00, expect to haggle, and probably finally pay you $750.00 for it.
      Be aware that a gun shop will offer you only about half of its real value, since they have to make a profit when they sell it.

      Thanks for your response, Steve. Researching this gun was fascinating about its history and usage.
