Manufactured in 1919, this Military Model of 1902 pistol exhibits the mid-production high polish blue finish and spurred hammer which was just beginning to be phased in, and was standard by approximately serial number 37000. The left side of the slide is marked with the two-line patent date and two-line address arranged in two blocks with the Rampant Colt behind the serrations. The right side of the slide has the two-line caliber marking, "AUTOMATIC COLT/CALIBRE 38 RIMLESS SMOKELESS". The left side of the frame has the serial number and "VP" and "1" on the left of the trigger guard. It is fitted with blade and rounded top notch sights, a lanyard swivel on the lower left of the grip frame, checkered hard rubber grips with Rampant Colts and "COLT" banners, and a full blue magazine marked "CAL. 38/COLT" on the base.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 97% plus of the original high polish blue finish and 97% vibrant case colors on the hammer with some scattered light scratches and very light edge wear, primarily at the front of the slide and bottom rear grip strap. The grips are also excellent with a few scattered light handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
