This a Colt 1911, serial no. 3639. It was shipped on 06 June 1912 to Depot of Supplies, U.S. Marine Corp, 1100 S. Broad St., Philadelphia, Pa.

This was in the first shipment of 1911's to the Marines.

It has the proper magazine and (when I acquired it) came with a USMC holster.

Looks like a righteous and significant 1911. Congratulations!
Charlie, I see that you adjusted titles, it gave me a chance to revisit some of these outstanding guns you own! Thank you for the treat!
