Yep, just like the original purchase receipt for my 1972 2.5" Python states $149.50.

We aren't that lucky!!!

I have a 17-4 from 1981. It is extremely well built and tight in all respects. Very accurate too. They just didn't do the best polishing job in it, thus leaving imperfections under the bluing. Makes an otherwise perfect gun look inferior. Just another example of quality issues being present much farther back than people realize.

Congrats on the score. Hopefully you got a nice example that will serve you well for a very long time.
