    I have a .32 colt cobra lightweight an am trying to get some idea of its value . the serial number puts it at a 1958 manufacturer . it is 99% at the worst . there is just barely a visible line on the cylinder from the lock up mechanism . it is a 1st model without the barrel shroud an a really nice set of full checkered grips with silver medallions , the grips are approximately 5/8 longer than the frame . its a high polish blue cylinder an barrel an blue -black finish on the frame with a 2" barrel . Thanks in advance for any information . I have seen similar condition .38 lw bringin over $850.00 an found one old blue book that said the .32 np were much rarer an add 40% . This seems like a high amount just for a caliber difference . Please help any information will be greatly appreciated . i have no way of getting pics of it so i hope i posted this in the correct area . I did see the appraisal link after i posted sorry for the screw up

    That gun is kind of in the no-man's land between a shooter and a collectible. The caliber reduces the value as a shooter, yet the gun is not yet enough of a collectible for the rarity of the caliber to have much effect. IMHO, $800 or so would be about right, for a retail price. Of course you wouldn't get that from a dealer or in a trade.
