$3500.00 for the Silver one? If so, what is the gold one worth, IYO?3,500 is the low end of the current average that I am seeing. They have jumped since last year where they could be obtained for $2,500. Seems collectors are waking up to the realization that actual engraved pistols are difficult to come by and in limited numbers versus the "engraved" S&W models that are on the market.
I don't think gold vs. silver plating makes much difference in the value. What you're really paying for is the artistry of the carving in the steel. In my eyes a blued gun is more handsome --and more practical-- than silver (which tarnishes) or gold plating (which typically is soft and wears poorly).$3500.00 for the Silver one?

The left hand version has long been on my wish list.There's an ejection port on both sides? Classy. That should increase the value as it's pretty rare.
