Hello, Tex. Welcome to the forum. I think you will do fine with your English.  :) Lots of good stuff on your site. Too bad I don't understand French.  #>_

Hello,I have been told many Centaure 1860 were sold in Europe even engraved pieces.Do the bring a premium price and are ownership laws strict on the contenant?
Best regards,

The Belgian factory made 3 different styles of factory engraved models of the good ole Centaure: de Luxe style which is high gloss polish/white finish and colt style engraving, available for the 8" barrel Regular New Model Army (RNMA) and 5,5" barrel Marshal, oiled grips with Centaure emblem; next grade is Super de Luxe which is high gloss polish/blue finish and deep cut colt style engraving with 2 silver inlaid rings around the muzzle area and the cylinder, only known from RNMAs; top grade was Presentation which is high gloss polish/traditional blue/case colors, deep cut colt style engraving with gold inlays, ivory grips, only known from RNMAs.
For details and pics go to www.1960nma.org click on page ENGRAVED AND OTHER EXOTIC PISTOLS.
Yes, these factory engraved variants demand premium prices.
