Description:

Manufactured in 1942 with "U.S. PROPERTY" mark on the right side of the frame. Matching number slide and frame. Introduced as a commercial pistol, the 1903 was adopted by the U.S. military after proving a commercial success and became the standard sidearm for General Officers during WWII and was still issued into the 1970s. Although this pistols serial number falls in the middle of known General Officer pistols, it is not identified as such (561039 and 561064 both identified). Provenance: The Mel Raucher Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 90% plus of the slightly faded original blue finish with a small patch of light pitting on the front lower right of the slide, a few scattered patches of light spotting, and a few scattered light handling marks. The grips are also excellent with a few scattered light blemishes in the otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
