    You, and 7.53 billion other people on earth will find it difficult to believe!

    That is crazy-coincidental, and really, really cool. I would be happy to have just one to go with my Army M1909. Thanks for sharing.

    Amazing. Three conservatives and USMC to boot! The New Service M1909 is such a fine revolver too. You can just feel the quality in those pre WWI Colts. They are as smooth as glass.

    Just too cool! You don't have a piece of history, you have a chunk of it.
    Do you think that any of these saw service during WW1?

    No real way to determine where these revolvers went with the Marines. Almost certainly the Philippines, then who knows where, Nicaragua, Haiti? By WW1 the Marines were armed with the 1911 & 1917, so these 1909's were probably in reserve.

    Hello Fredh46,
    if you know a little bit more about the early numbering, I would be glad to hear..
    I have Colt 1909 No. 24028 that letters as USMC No. 47... but have a look at the picture.

    I have asked this question before.. search with No. 24028 and you will see the information I got.

    I own USN model that is #35 and it also shows being shipped in the same group of 85 as yours. My letter also states it was marked USMC #35 and shipped to United States Government General Storekeeper United States Marine Corps Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. These first group of Navy guns were shipped to the marines so I think that Colts records are in era as to the correct markings. It probably shows that in the ledger book at the Colt archive department and that is how they type the letters. These are Navy guns as there are marked as such and have the standard New Service frame with smooth walnut stocks.
