    Anything with a FLGR is fluff, if JMB didn't put it on the 1911 you don't need it.
    If you are going to collect, don't be 'drawn' to an example that is not original, nor correct. Instant gratification is more expensive than a good education.

    Are those not UKicon inspection marks?

    I couldn't find them at all...looking in the wrong place I expect. So this one may have been a pick up of some description and then sold into the public after the war...?

    Mmmmmmmm. I suggest that your booklet is somewhat out of date if it suggests that the CP mark is the '....definitive black...... barrels' from 1637. But to be honest, some of the proof marks cannot even be identified by the UKicon proof houses. So they suggest that they reproof them again, at your risk and cost!

    The point I'm making Mike is that while the pistol dates from the 20th century - as in 1911, the booklet you show describes the proof mark as something relating to black powder shotguns and muzzle loaders! Unless it's ME that missing something

    Sorry Peter I misunderstood the sense, you're right there is something amazing to find such stamp on this kind of pistol, have you seen that before?
