Does anyone know the DOB or value?

I am very sorry, I missed the Sweet Sixteen. I was too busy focusing on the age, again, sorry.

the dob for the Sweet 16 with that serial is 1957, I blew it bad :oops:

No problem,....heh it is still 13 years older than me :lol:

Can you tell how the blue book breaks down for that year or is it the same as in a previous post I read where you stated the value of a pre 1977 model?

Also, is there a brief explanation you can give of determing the condition "percentage".

Thanks again for your help.

Yeah it would, the values you refer to (thanks for taking the time to self-help) are supposed to be for 1936 -1976 units.

here's the NRA system http://www.mp5.net/info/nragrade.htm

converting..

New / perfect = 100%
Excellent = 95 - 99% (typically)
very good = 80 -95% (must be all original)
Good = 60 -80% (should be all original)
Fair 20 - 60% (may or may not be original but must function properly and shoot)
Poor under 20% ( wallhanger)
