    Sorry, I thought it was legible.

    Full # 211453.

    Edit. Interesting info on the Belgian contract 1903s

    Any thoughts from the 1903 gurus? Post-production stamp, anomaly, or did Brunner err?

    I suppose that this may be one of Dr. Brunner's few discrepancies in his collating and analysis of the data. Kurusu's serial number, 211435, definitely dates to 1916, and the inside of the slide bears the last three digits of the serial number. And, as hoya74 notes, Brunner writes that this practice began in 1917, c. sn 250000.

    There is no doubt that Dr. Brunner is THE definitive hammerless authority, but as often noted, "with Colt anything is possible".

    Maybe Colt started the numbering on the slides for the Belgium contract and kept on doing it, because it made sense. Since they went away from the USA they may have "flown under the radar". Quien sabe?

    By the way. Paging Mr. ei8ht!

    Jim you also got one of those. Is you slide numbered?

    I don't understand why the pictures got so small. Because they were not.

    Hope they don't "shrink" this time.

    The A in diamond is very lightly(and poorly) struck but is visible.

    I sent a message to Paul asking if they have access to the Belgian 1903 contract which might specify the slide s/n marking.
