Manufactured in 1919 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 late, "grey/blue" factory finish that was implemented 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 smooth pearl grips with gold Colt medallions. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection
Extremely fine, retains 85% plus of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily towards the front of the slide and right rear of the grip strap, and some scattered dark blue spotting. The grips are very fine with some scattered light scratches. Mechanically excellent.
