serial #2736606, 45 ACP, 5" barrel with an excellent bore. This gun is as new in the box and features an engraved and etched gold filled American eagle on each side of the slide extending downward onto the frame. The wings are outstretched and the silver eagle heads are peering toward the muzzle with one of the legs clutching arrows visible on the right side of the frame behind the grips. The metal surfaces are finished in blue with 99% present but the slide is toning to plum and there are several small scratches on the left side of the slide. To further accent the pistol the sights, hammer, slide stop, magazine release, barrel bushing and grip screws are gold plated. The double diamond checkered factory hardwood grips with gold Colt medallions rate excellent. America Remembers and the remaining barrel address run along the top of the slide. The gun includes a beautiful French fitted hardwood presentation case with inset leather on the cover featuring a stamped gold and silver American Eagle with outstretched wings. The interior of the cover has a cloth American flag and the case is lined with a powder blue fabric. There is a brass plaque blackened with a pair of "[Federal Eagles] / AMERICAN EAGLE" printed on it. The presentation case rates excellent. Also included is the shipping box for the case, printed shipping sleeve for the pistol that is correctly end labeled and numbered to the gun, a single factory magazine, key for the lock on the presentation case, white inspection gloves, hang tag and manual. A fine tribute to our great patriotic symbol. (88717-99) {MODERN} [John W. Young Collection] (1500/2000) SOLD FOR $1,725.00
