Here is some good reading and toward the end of the article it shows the different Gen grips.

The Colt Python

Hope this answers your question.

They would be Python Type II, like the set on my 1960 Python. In 1961 Colt was using a glossy poly finish, so a correct set for 1961 would appear different than these oil finished stocks. But the style, with the "half moon" cut stock panels below the medallions, would be identical.

1961 could be a transition year between Type 1 and Type 2 stocks. The exact date of Type 1 discontinuance has been a matter of speculation.
