The underside of the barrel has the "UNITED STATES PROPERTY" and "R.A.C." (Rinaldo Carr) stamps, "WGP" monogram and "R.A.C." on the right side of the frame, "R.A.C." on the rear cylinder face and "U.S./ARMY/MODEL/1909/No/48/162" on the butt around the lanyard swivel.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 95% plus of the bright original high polish blue finish and 95% plus of the original nitre blue with the balance mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily in the form of the light muzzle/edge wear. The grips are very fine with a few minor chips around the bottom edge and some scattered minor dings. Mechanically excellent.
