Manufactured in 1921 with fixed sights, the two-line/two-block patent dates and address on the left side of the slide ahead of the Rampant Colt, and the caliber markings on the right ahead of the ejector port. This pistol exhibits the later grey/blue factory finish that was adopted around serial number 36000. The trigger guard is marked "VP" and "1" on the left side, with a checkered casehardened spur hammer, smooth trigger, "CAL. 38/COLT" marked full blue magazine, and a pair of hard rubber grips with Colt banners and Rampant Colt imprints. Provenance: The Gus Cargile Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 95% plus of the original high polish blue finish and 90% of the vivid original case colors on the hammer with some scattered light edge wear showing a smooth grey patina. The faded grips are very fine with a few light handling marks, a minor ding in the right panel, and crisp checkering overall. Mechanically excellent.
