Manufactured in 1943 with "U.S. PROPERTY" mark on the right side of the frame. Matching number slide and frame.

Although this pistol's serial number falls in the middle of known General Officer pistols, it is not identified as such (568564 and 568573 are identified). Provenance: The Gus Cargile Collection

Excellent, retains 98% plus of the original parkerized finish with a few scattered light handling marks. The grips are also excellent with only the slightest handling marks and crisp grip checkering. Mechanically excellent.
