Manufactured in 1919, with a Colt factory letter identifying it as one of three sent to the B.H. Dyas Company of Los Angeles, California on September 11, 1922. A sporting goods/department store, Dyas billed itself as "The Most Interesting Store in California", with a log cabin and a rifle range inside the building. Half-moon front and round-top notch sights and rear serrations on the slide, with the two-line, two-block address and patent dates on the left side ahead of the Rampant Colt, the caliber markings on the right and a matching number on the underside. Fitted with a casehardened spur hammer, royal blue small parts, military configuration slide stop, lanyard swivel, extended grip frame, and a full blue magazine.
Extremely fine, with 90% plus of the original blue finish, showing spotting on the grip frame, denser patches of oxidation under and around the grips, bright edge wear, light scratches and mild handling marks. The faded grips are fine, with some light handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
