The one I saw had Sams head on the grips. I’m guessing that was the lowest priced one in the series.

Gee, I could see a Browning commemorative 1911, though JMB was dead too but Sam died 47 years before the 1911 was introduced.... but that's just me. Some guns are collectable due to their craftsmanship, condition, rareity and beauty. Some are, for better or worse, designed and marketed as collectables.

Sam Colt had nothing to do with JMB's 1911. Colt was long dead. Bicentennial what? Why? Seems like a marketing ploy to me.
Sam Colt was equally dead when the Colt Single Action Army made its debut in 1873.

I could see a Heritage commemorative 1911 for JMB, even today, but Sam Colt & the 1911 linked?
Someone want to spell this one out please.
