Valuations in Std Catalog of S&W

I have come to rely on the latest revision of Supica & Nahas excellent book, Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson, and recommend it without reservation to anyone with even a modest interest in Smith & Wesson revolvers.

However, the valuations given in this book seem woefully below what guns are going for on GunBroker.com. For example, SCSW gives the following values for a Model 17 (1957-89): ANIB $600, Exc $475, VG 350, ...

Of course, this covers a range of "dashes" and years and I would think older versions (dashes) in similar condition would have higher values than newer versions. Yet, any model 17 worth its salt on GB now is going for over $700.

Do I completely disregard SCSW valuations completely?
