COLT 1911 45 AUTO/1915 US NAVY.  -

Sold by James D. Julia auctions on March 2008 for : $10,925.00

"COLT MODEL 1911 45 AUTO/1915 US NAVY. SN 109799. Cal. 45 ACP. In 1915 the US Navy purchased 500 Colt 1911 beginning with the SN 109501 to 110000. This pistol is SN 109799, right in the middle. It has a the Colt polished blue finish of the era just prior to the dull military blue with the right side of the slide being marked "Model 1911 US Navy". Pistol is in exceptional condition, showing over 90%, which is very difficult on a typical WWI gun, let alone the rare Navy version. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: The frame of this GHS inspected Colt retains approximately 85% of its orig finish with a very faint takedown mark that barely goes through the blue and the front grip straps turning a plum.ááMainspring housing is also thinning in pluming as are the edges of the frame adjacent to it.ááGrip safety shows just a little bit of wear on the high edge points as does the safety and slide stock.ááThe slide retains 95-97% of the original blue with several light scratches on the top and a couple on the right side that are barely noticeable.ááThere is just the least little bit of high edge wear, making me believe that this pistol was stored in an arms locker rather than holster.ááLanyard loop magazine shows nearly new with just a little bit of flaking and light scuffs on the front lower part.ááGrips and grip screws show about new.ááThe HP marked bbl shows just a minimum amount of scuffing from being cocked.ááAction is crisp and clean and the bore is bright and shiny, near mint.ááThis is the best 1915 Navy that I've ever seen. 4-34140 BK103 (6,000-10,000)"
