What is the golden era of Colt?

What years would you define as the "golden era" of Colt and why? What I mean is what period of time in Colt's history do you think they excelled the MOST at quality control, level of finish quality, types of models offered, or any other characteristic which you deem relevant to determing such a thing?

I forget how to post a poll, but I would rather just have peoples commentary anyway... Thanks.

Here is a photo of the display we had a few years ago. As you can see from the name on the top of the display I had 1911-1941 as the Golden Era of Colt's double action revolvers. I think a good argument could be made for 1896-1941 or 1900-1941. Of course this is subjective and each collector and shooter has his or her own thoughts.
