    It appears to be a genuine 1st gen. A few more pictures would help. The Colt Address line on top of the barrel would be of interest.

    Is there something that makes you wonder or be suspicious about it?

    no; really I'm asking because I'm no expert
    also wondering how it came to France and how much it could be worth
    thanks
