Your pistol was manufactured in 1950.

Thanks, Thiokol. What was the first year for Commanders? I thought 1952, but obviously I'm wrong.

The first Commanders were made in late 1949. There were only 65 produced in 1949 with the serial numbers from 001 to 009 & 0010 to 0065. The LW suffix was added in 1950 with serial #66LW. This data comes from the Sutherland & Wilson Book of Colt Firearms.

I hope that this helps.
