Very interesting. So this is basically an early Cobra with a Police Positive Special barrel? Congratulations on a great find. From here it looks like a brand new gun. Thanks for sharing with us.
The 1929 Union City (NJ) City Directory listed John J. Tobler as "Sporting Goods" at 507 32nd, residence same.
1940 Census - John J. Tobler (age 65) "Merchant, Store" living at Bergan County, NJ.
John J. Tobler died May 24, 1944.
Super nice gun! So the lightweight has an alloy frame in 1951 already? I was gonna tell you how much you suck for finding guns like that when I don't, but I'm a nice guy so I won't...

A clone of that is for sale in a CT store, with the letter. Newington Gun Exchange. I think it was $1,500. FWIW.
Very nice. I have previously found a “lightweight” Detective within 100-200 numbers serial also in CT. Wondering why that is since these guns were supposed to be shipped to out-of-state destinations.
