1897/1903 Colt 32 Auto Smokeless/Rimless - Value?
A good friend of mine was gifted this gun from a friend of his who was a rather old gentleman. He would like to know it's value, could any of you help me figure out what it's worth? It's pretty old, the finish is somewhat ugly, and there is a chip on the left grip as you can see. The gun is in working condition albeit it looks a bit grimey/dirty ( I have no idea how to tear it down, neither does he).

Anyway any idea what it's worth? The goal is to sell it to buy a modern 9mm for carry purposes, or to trade it directly for one. Is this actually worth something or it's just an old piece of junk due to its condition?
