    Quick look on GB shows a number of these from 1920 down showing 'Speckling' under the blue.

    Yowza. "Overpriced" isn't the right word for that one.
    I tend to see them go for around $500 when they have good honest wear. Bluing worn through on the high spots and just a nice overall patina.
    The finish on the one at the pawn shop really is quite nice other than the speckles. I'd value it at perhaps $400 or $450...but I go to way too many auctions to pay full price for anything anymore.

    My trapdoor Springfield cost me a whole $220

    Martin08,
    Just a beautiful example....
    Thanks for sharing it.
    May I ask, Were you the one who picked up a Korean bring home 1st block NPM ? Maybe ~2 years back ?
    If it's the one I'm thinking of I have that topic saved and use it to compare 'Want to be's' by.
    In fact I was getting ready to find it and put a link to it in the M1icon/M2 forum in a post I started today about NPM's.

    Again Thx...

    Thanks Charlie. I found the Colt a a small local show for around $750, if I recall.

    Yes. What a good memory! I don't post often over here, but I did find a complete original NPM a few years ago. I don't think that I started a topic on it, but instead added to someone else's topic.

    Here is a link, to save you some searching:

    Iím a sucker for 32 ACP. Couldnít tell ya why but something about it just appeals to me. But for $750, I donít think I could choke it down right now.
    Iíve told my girlfriend that I want a Colt 1903 engraved as an engagement present.
    So maybe one day Iíll have a really nice one haha.

    I agree, they aren't really that hard to fine. Even here...
