Thanks for all the comments so far.

DaveA, I'm receiving the value via pyODBC, after running a query on a database. The test is to first make sure the value is a Decimal (pyODBC returns a Decimal object if what is coming from the database is a decimal type). So if I don't have a value that is a Decimal object something is wrong.
