"COLT MODEL 1908 FACTORY NICKEL-PLATED HAMMERLESS PISTOL W/ORIG BOX. SN 363368. Cal. 25 ACP. Bbl 2". Stunning Colt Factory nickel-plated pistol. This pistol comes with Colt Factory ivory grips with silver Colt medallion and the orig shipping box and Colt Factory letter. This is the third type with the patent date of JULY 31, 1917 on the left side of the slide. Comes with one 6-rnd factory magazine. Accompanying this lot is a Colt Factory letter that states that this pistol left the factory in the condition described above and was sold to the Logan Valley Store Company & shipped to James C. Lindsay, HDWE. Company. The address was not listed, but the company had dealer locations in both Pittsburgh, PA and Little Rock, AR. The date of shipment was September 10th, 1928. CONDITION: Extremely fine, as new. Externally this pistol is nearly flawless retaining 89-99% of its orig finish. One tiny spot of what appears to be corrosion on the upper portion of the trigger, just where it meets the frame. Other than that, I see nothing beyond normal handling marks to indicate any use. Grips are equally fine, again showing just minor surface scratches or handling marks. Bright shiny bore, looks like someone put a few rounds through it as there is some fouling but I see no damage there. Mechanics are crisp. Box is very solid with the top back, left corner and bottom right front corner split. The words "COLT AUTOMATIC PISTOL" are a bit scuffed on the left side of the box, but are legible. Nearly impossible to upgrade. 4-31487 CSW20 (3,000-4,000)"
