Hi Bearpack,
Finally, got my Ithaca/Colt today from my FFL. She is a beaut! Serial No. 731055 on the lower. Sure would appreciate what you have on it. And many, many thanks for this service you are providing. Oh, R.S. in the box next to the magazine release. Jules

Colt 731055 went to Springfield on June 28, 1941 in a 3150-gun shipment.

Correct. They were shipped first to Springfield and then to wherever they were needed. Wish we knew the next stops but unfortunately it's a mystery.

The R.S. stands for Robert Sears, the inspector. Relatively rare, on Colts from 723,000 to 750,500.
