I have heard anectdoal testimonies of the BATF issueing a new Serial Number, for an old Gun which had suffered the original Serial Number being ground off or obliterated.

From what I gather, the process of petitioning for this is best done through a Licensed Gunsmith who is familiar with the procedure of presenting the issue to the BAFT, whom the BAFT then authorizes to stamp the 'new' Serial Number.

BATF Documentation of the authorization and new Number issuance, should be kept with the Gun of course, since the 'new' Number will not be like those Serial Numbers which would otherwise be found on a Colt m1911 Pistol.
