Manufactured in 1936, this is an outstanding example of a pre-World War II Colt Ace pistol. Blade front and adjustable notch rear sights, the two-line address and patent dates on the left side of the slide, the Rampant Colt behind the serrations, and the Colt Ace logo and caliber markings on the right. The frame is marked "60" on the right side of the trigger guard, "X/VP" on the left and fitted with a short checkered trigger, wide checkered hammer, checkered arched mainspring housing, a set of fully checkered grips, and a two-tone magazine with Colt Ace marked base. Includes a Colt maroon box that is very faintly numbered on the bottom (possibly to match the gun).
Excellent, retains 90% plus of the original blue finish with thinning on the grip safety, some scattered light handling marks and some very light edge wear. The grips are excellent with a few scattered very light blemishes in the otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The crushed box is fair with multiple separated edges and some absent pieces.
