SEE: http://www.coolgunsite.com/pistols/1911infopage.htm

The front end of the slide was hardened for 2-1/4" to 2-1/2" to prevent wear and deformation. This practice originated on COLT commercial pistols in 1925 ...and continued thru 1945 production. The hardened area is usually a darker color, although some Remington Rands are a lighter color on the front than on the rear. (CLAWSON...Third Edition)

Nice Anniston rebuild marked. Heat treat on the slide makes the repark look different to keep it simple.

Doubtful, with the rebuild marks. I would go out on a limb and say this was carried on duty over the last 75 years at some point.

Based on a little research since I got my CMP1911:
Yours looks to have a Remington-Rand Type 3 slide, used in 1943-1945.

That's what the 1944 Remington-Rand I received would have had when it was new.
The Type 2 (1943 only) slide on mine does not have that two-tone finish.
