    Just got this Mark I, T678 with Tapered Bold Ears. Serial No 272xx (1952), that I estimate is in 90+% condition.

    On the left side of the gun there are very small areas of wear on the front edge of the blade sight ring and barrel at the muzzle. Also a very small area of wear on the front edge of the receiver and a few very shallow scratches between the front of the receiver and RUGER stamp. There are a few small scratches/dings (exposed bare metal) around the pin above the trigger and a couple of tiny dings on the top of the receiver adjacent to the pin behind the Micro rear sight. Also a 1/8"" long, fairly deep scratch (exposed bare metal) just below the release lever on the back of the grip frame.

    There is no wear on the front or back of grip frame. However, the gun has obviously been disassembled at some point by someone who was not being very careful. The dealer didn't think it was reblued.

    According to the [i]Reference of Ruger Firearms, Pocket Edition #2[/i], compiled by Chad Hiddleson, it is estimated that there were ""only"" 2,750 of the T678's made with tapered bolt ears. So, based on my description and this one photo, I'd appreciate your opinions on what the gun might be worth. I'll try to most more photos later. [img]http://www.jpgbox.com/jpg/52161_600x400.jpg[/img]

    I paid $275 for it and thought it would be worth more than that. I'd appreciate input from experts on what it might be worth if I ever do want to sell or trade it.

    Due to the lighting it looks like the bluing is worn on the left barrel and grip frames but it is not worn except for the front of the barrel at the muzzle and the front edge of the receiver.

    This is a photo of the rear of the bolt showing that the flat is on top. I understand that a bolt with the flat on the bottom is the more common configuration.
