Default 1929 .38 Colt Detective Special...

Hi everyone, I am a new member to this forum, but I can tell I am in the right place.

I inherited a beautiful mint condition 1929 .38 Colt Detective Special with holster and some very interesting bullets as seen below...

While I am an avid gun fan, this is one of those pieces that I am clueless due to it's age what this piece is possibly worth. Even as mint as it's something that I won't fire, I have a 9mm, a .40 and a .45 for which I do that with.

Can anyone give me an idea as to what this may be worth?
