I just bought a Colt Army Special .38 made 1911. Neatly engraved on the sideplate is "Louis LaBard C.P.D. Sept. 7 1921". The dealer just bought it from an old lady who brought it to his shop. I asked the dealer if he asked the lady about the inscription. He said he did not think of it, and he will not recontact her. I can not find anyone locally with that last name. I hold this gun, and think about its history. Unfortunately that history is now lost forever.
