I am conflicted about selling a mint 1968 model Colt .38 Super. It is almost new. No idiot marks, only fired one box of shells and that was two weeks ago. Got the original box. Now I am wondering what the value of it would be. Any idea since you own one. This is the first one I ever saw and it was passed down through the family of a friend. Not sure I would sell it but depending on what it is worth will depend on if it will be sold. At this time, it is not for sale.

I would do everything I could to keep that 50+ year old beauty in that shape.

Your's would be a Government model in 38 super made in 1968. The value of a mint state 1911 Government in 38 super is 1800.00 to 2000.00 with no box.

fugotti, that is a beauty! Did the .38 Super Matches of that time period use the lightened slide like the Pre '70 Gold Cups ?
