Colt also applied some of the markings after the pistol was finished with no problem from rusting. The assembler and the final inspectors identification mark was either a letter or number, and the Verified Proof mark were all applied after finish. I feel sure that after the proofing process the pistols would have been cleaned and preserved before putting them back in their box.

The PXB would indicate the pistol was proofed in 1964. Bear in mind that the proofing only took place when the firearm was to be sold commercially and not when it arrived in England. It could have been a B of B gun, but through unknown circumstances did not reach the commercial market in England until 1964.

Very interesting and nice revolver.
