Default 1952 grey plastic medallion k magnas

I have a set in the 139xxx range, not with original gun. They are in good- very good, with no chips or gouges, and some minor flattening of the checkering. My question is, do they command any premium over the nickel or bare steel variations?

I've had a few pair. They are novel, however I never got extra $ when sold.

Probably dont command a premium because they basically run under the radar and are only appropriate for the short period used.

To someone that needs a correct set maybe worth a premium but the serial wont match so dicey proposition

I agree, and since we know that changes, like the plastic or steel stock monograms, were never exclusive and continuous over a specific period of use, I would prefer to use stocks with standard nickel over brass feel authentic, rather than pay a premium or even use plastic ones.
