I have a Colt Commander, (LW) with a Serial Number which indicates production during 1949. The piece is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition. It has been fitted with a Barstow barrel and bushing and a pair of Colt, smooth, medallion stocks. Otherwise all is stock. No Box or Papers. Can the more enlightened among you please educate me in regard to collectible value. Personally, I really like the gun and I have no immediate intention to Trade or Sell it but would like to know a little more about it.
Many Thanks to all who care to respond.

The SN on this piece has no suffix or prefix and consists of 4 digits 25XX. According to the Colt SN online look up this SN places it in 1949 Production. Perhaps like FN and Browning, Colt SN data is a little "goosey"?

The only Colt Commanders that I am aware that Colt manufactured until 1970 were the Lightweight Commanders and other than the first 64, all had a “-LW.” suffix. What do the rollmarks on the right hand of the slide say? Do they say “COLT’S MFG. CO. HARTFORD CT. U.S.A.” or does it say “COLT’S COMBAT COMMANDER”?
