I took a Delta Gold Cup in a trade this weekend. A couple of folks told me I scored the Holy Grail of the Delta's:
Blue Delta Gold Cup-probably 85-90% condition. Some minor finish wear from the box and a couple of minor scratch's.
Adjustable Trigger-Sight's and flattop slide.
Serial is: DG062XX.
With box-paperwork-trigger adjustment tool and 2 mags.
Pistol is bone stock and slide and frame are uncracked.
It has been fired but does not apper to be more than maybe 500 rounds.
I gave the guy $800.00 consideration towards a Bronco I sold him.

Anybody here well versed on the Delta's that can give me some info on it?
When made and how many were made.
A real world value?

Here is a site with most of the answers. I have a Delta Gold Cup Enhanced in Stainless that I probably should not be shooting, as according to Colt only about 1100 were made.
I use it regularly in competition, with medium power loads.

I would very much like to see a picture of your Gold Cup enhanced. On other Colts, the enhanced versions have the extended beaver tail, commander hammer, and flat top slide with an 'E' in the serial number. I was curious to see how it differs from my standard Gold Cut DE.

Delta Gold Cup # DGO1XXXE finger groove under the trigger guard, beveled mag well, extended bevertail-- don't remember the rest but it is a keeper cause it shoots so well!
It really needs a good cleaning! Sorry for the big pic, don't know how to make it smaller.

Go to the web site below, hit browse, it will then go to the pics in your computer. Then download it to tinypic. Copy the url, then paste it in the box that comes up from the choices below (looks like a postcard)
