Shipped to Springfield Armory on 4 April 1918, well before the end of World War I. The left of the slide is marked with the two-line, two-block patent dates and address with the Rampant Colt behind the serrations, while the right has the standard "MODEL OF 1911 U.S. ARMY" marking. The left of the frame has the U.S. property marking and "JMG" inspection mark, and the serial number is on the right. The full blued barrel is marked with a conjoined "HP" on the chamber hood and "5" on the bottom. Fitted with blade and notch sights, wide checkered hammer, long smooth trigger, short grip safety, diamond pattern checkered grips, and an unmarked two-tone magazine.
Very fine, retains 85% plus of the original brushed blue finish, some blue touch-up on the front grip strap, and the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina. The grips are excellent with a few scattered light handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
