1903 Colt Auto (Reproduction Box, Real York Mint) MIB
Mint in box never eaten.

Mint perhaps....never fired in 104 years?

Most Colt hammerless collectors learn not to say "Never Been Fired".
It is impossible to prove over 100+ years without extreme provenance.
It hurts your credibility and makes you sound arrogant. JMO



(York Mint has been eaten...yum)

Looks like a post 1915 type finish. Better pictures?
The grips and slide markings would indicate it is a later production gun than 1912.

Zooming in on the picture, there appears to be rust freckling on the slide.

I would definitely need a lot of better high-resolution photos to make a more accurate evaluation -- and I don't mean to try to "knock down" what looks to be a nice firearm -- but from the one picture it doesn't appear to be what the OP is describing.

NEVER fired the feed ramp still had factory grease. :) Gun had never been cleaned... still has original Colt factory grease throughout.
Freshly applied Ren wax would be more believable.
Need better pictures to support OP. JMO
