I've inherited a Colt 1911 A1. #1713665.
On same side as serial # is "M1911 A1 U.S. ARMY"

And all the requisite Colt patents on the other side: 1897, 1902, 1911, 1913.

Letters "GHD" left side just below slide stop.

Trigger guard, left side, very small "E" and inverted triangle with letter "P" inside. Trigger guard, right side, same place, "93."

Letter "P" by magazine catch.

I know from the Colt page that it was made in 1944. Has plastic - or at least non-wood - grips. Two magazines, WWII web belt with "U.S.", leather holster with "U.S."on flap, as well as leather shoulder holster.

This gun was carried by an Army physician serving in China.

Hope attached photos viewable. Anybody have a ballpark estimate as to value? Thanks.
