We don't know if it is valid, but kinda cool to see it still in the box with the other paperwork. There is tattering to the edges and some damage to the Styrofoam. All paperwork has been opened and fingered through.

Our Assessment: We have only ever seen one Gold Cup Commander come though this shop, and needless to say, it looked different and was boxed different. These pistols are custom ordered and limited in production, so finding one a little different isn't necessarily a bad thing. There is no letter from colt, and the end label is handwritten, there is no notation of the special features like squaring of the trigger guard or the grips. As is sits the gun looks good and feels good in the hand. The gun works and is made by Colt. What more could you ask?
