Re: gold medallion grips

Starting in about 1933 to the early 1950's, Silver was the only type used.

In 1955, the Python, as a "super premium" gun got the first Gold medallions, while all other Colt's still used Silver.

Sometime in the early 1960's Gold began to appear on other Colt's, and by in the mid to later 70's, Gold became standard on all Colt's.
