If you were to search the *completed auctions* on Gunbroker.com for example, you might gain some insight.

My guess on your piece is $650-$900 depending on the day.

I would agree with both y'alls appraisal if it were a Gold Cup as opposed to a Gubmint Model.

When someone asks "what is it worth?", they are looking to sell.

So how much do you need to take it off of your hands?

That is what it could be worth (but not necessarily).

Actually I am not looking to sell. I was just curious of the value to just see what I have.

Nice! I have one that looks just like it. Bought it in 1976 and very little trouble with it over the years. I'm not selling mine!
