Would appreciate your opinions on the value of a Colt Gold Cup NM that I have the opportunity to purchase. It is missing it's original box and papers, it is in good to very good condition. Going to view it from a private seller over the weekend. See Pics below.

About $1800. It'd be worth a lot more if was like-new with the original box.

I own several National Match pistols. All of high quality, with boxes, paperwork and all but one with the test target. I recently parted with one, a 1969 shipped pistol with box, papers and test target. The pistol was LNIB with no arks or scratches and I sold it for $2600.
Your pistol has a scratch under the ejection port and some high edge wear on the slide. The left side grip doesn't look like a real walnut one but that might be the way the picture was taken. Without box and papers, target and given it's condition, I'd say dsk is about right. $1800-$1900 in my part of the country.

Also agree with DSK. A few years I bought a 1966 from the previous owner. He still had the sort of beat up box with papers etc inside. Gave him about $2K for it but got to shoot it a bit before buying. I have a shooting collection and shoot everything I have. It is on top with a 1979 I bought new in 1979 in the middle and a 1988 I gave $600 for a few years ago on the bottom.
