Came across this 1918 m1911 for sale. I know its hard to tell with this 1 limited picture but does it look correct and what value do think it might be if the barrel and mag are correct. Serial number is in the 300k range. I know the finish is all gone but at least the slide matches the frame (finish wise). What gives me pause is slide stop is a lot darker than the rest. So tell me what you think....

thanks for any help

Trigger appears to be a later type.

Blueing durability can vary on small parts and frame, where small parts retain the Blue longer somehow or other, but, more images and close-ups of parts in question, would be needed.

I contacted the seller to find out for sure what the SN# was and sadly its SN is 347325. I thought it was 247xxx. Made the mistake in the first post saying 300k and not 200k like I thought. So the slide is incorrect to frame. I will not be buying it :(
