More Old Guns

This is a Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless in .32 ACP. This particular gun was made in 1912, perhaps my oldest gun.

The corrosion is not as bad as the picture makes it seem. It's merely the blue worn off and a patina forming, it's still glassy smooth, just not uniform in color anymore. A neighbor of a friend asked me "what's it worth?" I told him I would give him $200 for it. He bit. It's worth a lot more, like $600 in this condition without a box.

Together with its younger cousin, the Model 1908 Vest Pocket in .25 ACP.
