Colt has beed trying for over a year now to find these Colts. After all their searches they tell me they have no records. Thought someone might have something. Here is what I have.
1964 Nevada Centennials con. s/n's 2457 and 2458. They are both 45's. What is throwing Colt off is when guns like this were paired up usually one was a 45 and the other was a 22. The guns have never even had the hammer cocked. I picked these up at an auction a year or so ago for $3500. I know they are worth a lot more but I can't find them anywhere. Can anyone give me a lead?

Thanks, Jess

If Colt can't ID them SOMETHING ain't kosher.

Did you get any paperwork or outer box with info on them like serial number or model numbers?
What does the auctioneer know about them?
In other words is there any provenance about the gun's past. Where they came from, who had them?

Is it possible you have a "broken" set".
In other words, someone had two sets of guns, put the two .45's in one box, and the two .22's in another, then sold them.

Colt keeps very good records on guns so I'm surprised they can't ID them.
Have you just been talking to them, or have you paid the $100. for the Colt Historical Letter?
When you pay the money, Colt does a FULL search and tells you everything they know about the guns.

Another possible source of info is Cherry's, who are THE non-Colt experts on Commemorative guns:

Generally speaking, commerative models don't hold much value over a plain jane verion of the same gun. Commeratives are worth only what someone is willing to pay for them, as you already know, I'm sure.

Might try some SASS guys who really know Colts, maybe a Colt SA collector's association????
