It's probably on the high side but has a lot of things going for it.

Not out of the realm of possibility that he'll get that for it.

He's already got that amount!

I've never seen an auction with 115 bids.

The only way to get one better is to go back to 1967. Yes it's a lot of money but if you are a collector and have a lot of money, where are you going to find one better. If you can find a Silver Dollar that would grade as nice as this one you would be in 6 figures. Just saying!!!!!

Heck I never even looked to see that there were bids already. Just "assumed" :oops: $1000.00 was his opening amount.

And fella's, it is 2019, not 1989 as far as prices go.

Somebody I know recently bought a near mint OM 45 convertible with both cylinders. When I (oops.... HE :lol:) found a super nice box and owners manual to match it, that $100.00 for a cardboard box didn't seem like much at all!

It's a penny auction with two days left.
Obviously there is quite a bit of interest.
With two days left the price could go up quite a bit.

I personally wouldn’t pay over $500, cause to me, a non collector, it isn’t that special.

Gunshow here in Az last month had one just like it for $600. Don't think he sold it as I was there late in the last day. Is that the box they had in 67?

That is a very nice, correct package for that gun. It is missing the brown cardboard shipper,, but otherwise a nice one.
Collectors like such fine examples,, but a shooter would not even consider paying that much. There are plenty of shooters out there,,,, but not many ANIB guns that old.

I'd like to see the "Bid History" on that one, but not enough to "sign in".

The one I spotted at that gunshow I would have shot it like crazy.

I'm not a collector and almost never buy new guns. My experience is that they get both better and cheaper with age, unless you're a collector.

(Of course you MIGHT say the same thing about Ruger shooters....especially the CHEAPER part!).

These prices make any Ruger out there worth more. Perhaps the soft used gun market is getting stronger again.
