I saw Colt No.710017 many years ago at one of the old Houston Astro Hall gun shows, and at that time is was phosphate finished. In the reprinted TM, with the added history in the front, it appears to still be phosphate finished with Coltwood large ring grips. It was later refinished back to blue, and I have an old list of pistols put out by Oliver de Gravelle in 2000, and in that list he notes that it has been reblued.
