J505xx was made in 1971.
The numbers that year started at J50201 and ended at J72200.

The Border Patrol is simply the Colt Trooper Mark III with a different barrel mark.
It was produced from 1970 to 1975.
There were 5,356 made in blue, and 1,152 made in bright nickel.
An unknown number were actually bought by the US Border Patrol, the rest sold commercially.

These are starting to get collectors interest, especially in nickel.

Normally, I'd say $649 is too much for a 90% model, but Colt prices have started to skyrocket, so this may no longer be too far out of line.
