Request Ithaca Shipping Information

I just received my CMP M1911A1. It is an Ithaca frame with a later GI slide. I would like to ask the forum for shipping information. SN is 2104081. I believe this contract was in 1945 but would appreciate more detailed shipping information if it is available.
Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately I never manage to find a copy of the original shipping documents, but from Clawson's work, if I've read it properly, looks as if your ITHACA frame was shipped on 9th December 1944 among other 3,200 pistols to Rock Island Arsenal.
Anything with a FLGR is fluff, if JMB didn't put it on the 1911 you don't need it.
If you're going to collect, be careful not to get drawn to a piece that is not original, make sure it is a very good example and buy the gun not the story.
