The holster might be an original in good condition worth $100 or it might be a post war worth $25. We don't know.

Value is subjective; if someone wants to pay $1000 for that it's their money so go for it. I would not, because there are better examples available for that price.

I'm not saying the gun is bad or the seller is evil. I'm stating facts about the gun and opinions about the value. That's all.
ah, I'm just rattling your cage a bit. I think we're all on pretty much the same page. I do, however, think you're low on what the pistol is actually worth. (of course, that's just my opinion, and you're free to yours also.) Never the less, I agree with you... I wouldn't really be interested in a pistol that has been re-finished. like you said, for $1000+, you could find one that's more original. Also, (and again only in my opinion) it's nice to have a COA from the CMP, but I definitely don't think it's worth $400. Of course, we're all just interjecting our own opinions here, and that's what makes the world go around. On a side note, if you carried that pistol to our local military show and asked $600 for it. It would sell so fast it would make your head spin. Even though it's not for me, I still think it's worth at least $1000.
