Thanks so much

Well......................maybe a lot, and maybe not.

They were several variations of the 1902 made. Values of an original in Good start at about $2,000 and go up.

However, unless you can get a letter from Colt that would indicate it left the factory with those grips, and in nickel (my limited references show only blued versions) price drops off a lot.

I would suggest contacting Colt to see about a history letter (will cost) and having a firearms APPRAISER go over that one. This is NOT a simple "Oh, yeah, Model 36, 2 inch blued, worth between XX and YY. "
