Colt .45 Caliber Government Model MSP Commemorative
22-SEP-2008 2008 Dick Lowthian

Colt .45 Caliber Government Model MSP Commemorative

In 1978 Colt Industries produced a limited number of this
weapon to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Michigan
State Police. It came with a walnut fitted presentation case
with a scrolled plate affixed to the top with the following
inscription: "Michigan State Police 1917-1977. 60th Anniversary".
The Michigan State Police shield appears in the center of the plate.

This gun has never been fired.

Here are some additional photos of the gun and
presentation case http://www.pbase.com/lowthian/colt_45

I also own one of these and I contacted the Colt Historian who advised that all of these 60th anniversary 45s were fired at the factory to ensure they were operationally safe prior to being shipped out.

Dick, I have one of these and I'm looking to sell it. Just like yours new in box/never fired. Can you give me an idea of what to ask for it? I'm thinking $1000.00. I also have a 75th anniversary 870 that I'm looking to sell. Band New in box. I'm looking to sell this also. Any ideas on what it's worth?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Man is that nice. I'm a Michigan State Trooper and I would love to own this piece but my current financial situation (plus my wife being a part of this situation) just makes it a dream !!!
