1942 Colt 1911 with shipping box

https://www.gunbroker.com/item/852434734

Another awesome auction from Lumberjack. Whatís most interesting to me is the label on the shipping box. Shows it was sent to its buyer in 1966 at a cost of $14.50. To see it you gotta click on red link in auction for the high resolution pic to zoom in on.

Imagine if you had bought 100 of them back then at that price and held them till now. I donít know much but Iím guessing this thing will close for $3-4,000 minimum? Thatís would be a pretty good return on your investment.

Whatever the market price, Lumberjack will get the absolute top

For sure. Tom has a way of getting much more for things and I believe that has a lot to do with his presentations and pics.

He posted pics on the Colt forum of what he believes to be a 1 of 1 Bright Stainless Python elite with factory Ivory grips that was a Colt Ďshow guní.
Itíll probably hit the moon and bounce off!
That auction will most likely start soon. Iíll be watching that rocket too.

You couldn't.
DCM policy was one gun per type per customer, lifetime.

Thats a 1943 serial number, not a 1942. Shipped early to mid Feb 1943.

Photo Skills

I don't think his photo skills are near as good as Jack the Dog. Maybe it is the white background. I noticed that some photos that showed less white background were much clearer and showed more details. Just my thoughts.

According to Meadows, you are right. A February shipping date.
The front sights are the correct half moon shape found on earlier pistols. The front sight changes for the 1943 pistols were not implemented until April 1943 and old sights were used until stocks were exhausted.
