As another example of scarcity trumping condition, last week I was watching an older episode of Pawn Stars on the History Channel. A man had brought into the shop a Colt Patterson revolver which looked like a basket case. If it is possible for a gun to have less than zero cosmetic condition, this one would qualify. It also had indications of some later parts replacement. As usual, Rick called in his "Expert" gun buddy for an assessment. The expert felt it would easily bring $22,000.
