Classic Custom-manufactured in Or.

Howdy. I'm a new member to this forum and I have a question.
I have a Kimber Classic Custom that was manufactured in Clackamas, Oregon. I was wondering if this gives the gun any added value?

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois. I've seen one Kimber Custom Classic that was made in Clackamas for sale in a LGS. The asking price was $1000.00, it was new in box and sat unsold for almost a year. The owner of the store finally traded it off for some work on his truck. I have the same gun made in Yonkers that I gave $600.00 for with the original case and paperwork. The only person that would pay a premium price for a Clackamas roll stamp would be a dedicated collector and they're few and far in between. I'd put the max value at $800.00 if it was in like new condition with the original box and paperwork but what the heck do I know?
