Manufactured in 1944. The left of the slide has the two-line Remington-Rand address, "P" proof on top, and the frame is marked with the standard U.S. property and army nomenclature on the right with the unique serial number ("9", second to last digit in the serial number struck low, a unique factory error), while the left has an "FJA" inspection mark and "P" proof. Fitted with blade and notch sights, checkered narrow hammer, long grip safety, arched serrated mainspring housing, full blue barrel with "P" and "F" lug, reinforced grips, and full blue "S" magazine. Includes a U.S. Enger-Kress 1944 dated shoulder holster, 1942 dated Ero Mfg. Co. double magazine pouch with two extra magazines, a green canvas bag, and a waterproof plastic 1911 "invasion cover".
Excellent, retains 98% plus of the original parkerized finish with some very light holster wear, slide retraction marks on the barrel, and a light takedown mark. The grips are also excellent with a few scattered light blemishes and otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The accessories are very good or better with some light wear and some light oxidation on the magazines.
