the #, read from the bottom left to right No.5045 the number size is 1/16 of an inch the only other mark is a triangle in front of the trigger,the gun is never been re-nickeled also there is damage on the butt where the holster strap rubbed on the handle also there ic 3 s/n all of them match one on the crane,frame, and under the plate for the release

i know the grips are not right i put the 70s grips on because they are bigger and fit my hand i have the correct grips for it and i do think that the num. is a issue number
also i was looking around the web and saw where the 4" barrel is not as common as the 6" would that raise the value and about how much dose pre war colts go for round about like mine im not looking to sell but just would like to know
