Rare ≠ Valuable

The Lovely Harvey's very first gun is a S&W SW357V sku 120124.

Two-tone stainless slide, black frame.

Made from September 1998 to January 1999.  Hers was made on September 30, 1998.

The Standard Catalog optimistically says, "Values not reported.  Likely to bring a premium for rarity."

She paid $260 for it in '99.

I am sure there's a S&W collector hankering to fill this hole in their "every variation of the Sigma" display...

... and willing to pay upwards of $275!

Hang onto anything long enough and it becomes a valuable collector's item.


The trick is not dying of old age before "long enough".
