I show it as a London proof. I can't quite make out that mark on top of the slide proof. Is that a script "D"?

phyllis, Good eyes!! Both proofs were 'double struck.' There is a double 'V' on the frame and a double 'Crown' on the slide. I guess the person who knew how to strike a proper proof mark was on vacation when this one went through the proof house.

Near yours is #34448, 35163 and 35450 which have barrels marked "NP" arm over sword "38 8?5 T" "6 130GRS". #34448 was Shipped W R Grace & Co NY, NY 1 of 8 Jan 23, 1914.
Approx 900 pistols ( 3% ) of 38 PHs were shipped to Colt's London Agency, mostly WWI per Doug Sheldon.

Just purchased # 36608 which has crown/V , crown/GP and JJ stamps.
