Hi gasman and welcome to the forum Your Colt Detective special serial no. 58001 was made in 1912. Pics would help in determining the value of your Colt. Best regards
Ignorance is the most expensive commodity that you can own
Add 20% if the gun has a square butt frame. Must be verified by factory letter if early production.
That 1912 date came off the Colt serial numbers web site.
Disregard my earlier post regarding value. The prices I posted were for the very early models. It appears that you have a much more recent version, commonly referred to as the 3rd Gen. I would say your gun is worth about $450-$500 range.
Olympus is right. I have a DS made in the 1980's, 1984 I think and I paid $450.00 used for it.
