"Hard Slides" were fully heat treated. There are replacement USGI sourced "Hard Slides" prior to the 1980 sourced slides.

Most WW2 slides may have only been spot heat treated at the slide stop notch and front end. Also WW2 slides have a hardened insert in the breech face.

Well if we want to split hairs, they may have been put on and socked away, having never been "issued".

"In 1947 COLT introduced hard slids so called because they were heat treated all over to provide a uniform hardness and to eliminate the necessity for recoil plates. REMINGTON RAND first experimented with hard slides in 1943; COLT and ITHACA eventually followed at government request, but the process was not perfect until after the war." (Charles Clawson)

Post war Colt "Government Model" 1911A1 GI
replacement were slides culled from commercial production and provided a parkerized finish vice polish blue..
