Manufactured in 1943 with the standard two-line, two-block patent dates and address on the left of the matching numbered slide, divided by the Rampant Colt, and a "P" proof on top. The right of the frame has the standard U.S. property and army markings along with the serial number and the left has a "G.H.D." inspection mark, "P" proof, and "R/VP" on the trigger guard. There are Canadian "broad arrow" in "C" proof marks on the left of the frame and slide. The blued barrel has British proofs on the chamber, "COLT 45 AUTO" on the lower left, "P" on the left of the lug, and "F" over larger "G" on the bottom in front of the lug. It has standard features including reinforced grips and an "L" marked blue magazine.
Excellent, retains 95% plus of the original parkerized finish with numerous scattered light handling/takedown marks and some very light edge wear. The grips are excellent with a few scattered light blemishes in the overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
