    I have a chance to buy a S&W model 27 100th anniversary commemorative washington state penitentiary walla walla revolver in wood box never fired with keys and paper for $1000 .Im having a hard time finding a value on it becuse its so rare only 125 made. Any one know what this should sell for. Thanks.

    It's hard to put a value on a commemorative gun. The way I generally value them is just like a standard gun unless I have a personal connection to the subject material. If you were connected to the penitentiary, this probably wouldn't be a bad price. Not being connected, it might be a bit high, but not too much...

    I agree with mountainbear. To me, commemoratives aren't worth more unless I have some tie to what it is they are commemorating. That's just me though.

    Have you checked to see if there are folks now at the walla walla pen who own this gun? maybe they can shed some light on what they originally cost when they were introduced and you can go from there.
