    I have just traded and ended up with a 1947 38 super. The gun appears to be in very good shape. I dont think it has been shot much as the wear areas are missing little blueing. I believe 90-95%. The only issues I can see is on the slide near muzzle. One side has some holster wear only near muzzle and the other side has a small area with what appears as very light surface rust. I wish I could photo but camera is dead. Any Idea as to value? Should I try and flitz the surface rust or leave it as is? I plan on selling or trading.


    Thanks
    Jeff

    Leave it as is. You'll do more damage than good.

    leave it as it is if in fact it is truly original

    Now you might not know if it has already been messed with- parts changed - etc

    You should have someone look that does know because maybe it doesnt matter- it might not be worth much
