Default Colt Slide Serial Numbers

Starting this thread with the purpose of listing volunteered serial numbers of slides owned for 1911s/1911A1s. My WB colt has a colt slide but of a different SN. I will not be listing frame SNs (that is really nobody's business but that of the owner). Will keep the OP updated as numbers are posted (SLIDES ONLY)

As I understand it, it was mainly Colt that had the matched SN stamped under the firing pin retainer on slides for a period of time.
