    Years of the Rampant horse dancing on a "circle"?

    From what year to what year were the Colt 1908 .380s have the little circle below the horses feet?

    My theory is that the roll die came under severe pressure as the unsupported edge of the circle first came in contact with the slide, and the same thing as the die left the slide. This resulted in a number of breakages, and Colt decided to make use of these dies by removing all of the circle except the part where the Rampant Colt stood.

    The photo shows how much deeper the die marks as it initially touches the slide. Also, I have noticed that on some of the "Rocking Horse" markings that the Rampant Colt's ears are almost gone, as if they were almost removed when the circle was removed from the die.

    From what year to year did they use the dancing horse in the circle? What models Colts where stamped in this fashion?

    The trademark is a Rampant Colt, not a dancing horse.
