I don't know much about these, I know its not a 1911 so which do you think it is of the other two? Previous owner told him 1950's year of manufacture.

An easy way to tell the difference between a 30s gun and a 50s gun is to look at the front sight, the half moon sight was replaced with a ramped sight after WWII. Also look at the retaining pin for the crane, the older ones have a mated screw and pin and the post war guns went to a simplified screw that doubled as the pin. Below are pictures of my 1913 Army Special and 1967 Detective Special to illustrate.
