I missed the slide not being period original (was only looking at the finish). I wouldn't go 4 figues on it personally.

What if he has original grips and the holster? Still no 4 figures?

To me, it's only worth $1k-ish if it's got all original major parts (frame, slide, barrel). Grips and mag are a bonus but can be found. Holster adds very little.

Wrong slide combined with the refinish drops it down into the $600 range IMO. Why? Well the collector value is gone and being as early as it is, it's not an ideal regular shooter. It becomes more of a placeholder.

Up until SN 84,000, there was no 1913 date on the slide. For a 21,000 SN it should only have 1911.

Doesn't that serial number say it was made in 1913?

It was, but the extra patent date wasn't added until 1914. Nothing happened quickly as far as die changes, etc.

The slide is appropriate for frames with SNs between 84000 & 285000.

See my earlier post #6. That slide marking wasn't used until serial number 83856. It's a later slide.

even though it has been re-finished, I believe it is worth slightly more than $1,000. I think one could probably get $1200+ to the right person, in today's market. The magazine is post world war II military contract magazine.

*edit to add info- at a gun show or military show, that holster would bring around $100.
