Manufactured in 1945, the left side of the slide is marked with the standard two-line, two-block patents dates and address with the Rampant Colt between and a "P" is marked on top. The left side of the frame has the "G.H.D." inspection mark, "P" below the magazine release, and "e/VP" on the trigger guard. The right has the standard U.S. property marking, serial number, and model markings, with "56" on the trigger guard. The full blue barrel is marked "C" in a square and "P" on the lug. It is fitted with blade and notch sights, serrated slide release and mainspring housing, checkered thumb safety and narrow hammer, stamped trigger, reinforced grips, and a "G" marked full blue magazine.
Excellent, retains 97% plus of the original parkerized finish with a few very light handling marks on the grips straps and some light edge/handling wear. The grips are also excellent with a few scattered very light blemishes in the otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
