    That's basically all I know. A friend wants to sell it- I told him it may be worth more than he thinks. Can anyone help me? He says it's in excellent condition. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Not much info.

    I did sell a 1943 Ithica US marked 1911 for $850 and it was in excellent condition.

    But, excellent to one person may not be excellent to the next.

    What does the 1952 stand for?

    According to my friend, the year it was made. I should probably look at the gun, ascertain it's condition, and find the serial number. I'm sure that would help. Thanks.

    If it was made after 1945 it is a civilian Colt and the value is entirely different than a military issue 1911. See if you can send a photo.
