I am curious if anybody knows how many Colt Commanders were produced 1955? I picked up a well used one from a pawn shop and before I purchased it I googled around but couldn't find much info on the prices for Commanders from the 1950's.
Thanks for the info, I wasn't looking for a collectors item. I wanted a 1911 style pistol to play with and preferred a Colt, but Colt prices were a little high compared to other brands. I stumbled upon this Commander and it was rather nasty looking, but the price seemed right and I didn't really know if it was fairly priced. I ran the SN# through the Colt lookup and found out it was a 1955 model an thought it may have been a little older than what I was looking for. We settled on a price and home it went. Pawn shops are mixed bag for pricing.
