Nice! Actually more rare than Colt 1921's according to some writers (and collectors) Memphis P D I believe is who I researched as having acquired "a number" of these and marked them accordingly..

Most of these guns trickled out into circulation from MPD, and most appeared in original, un -shot condition through the 1980's! Apparently City purchased more for a P.R. move than actual use.
