Default Service Grade received… what are the chances

I received a service grade last week. OK… my wife did because I’m out of the running but it’s gorgeous. It’s a Colt frame with a Colt slide and High Standard barrel. Appears to have been thru Augusta Arsenal and Anniston Army Depot. Has the faint Ordinance mark, G.H.D, A A, ANRD, P, HS, along with other inspection marks. I am curious if anyone knows about the stamp on the top of the frame where it looks like a “G” in on top of an “S”?

The gun is tight and looks like after the Anniston rebuild in May of ’78, it remained in storage.

Here is the kicker, the Colt Slide and Colt frame have matching serial numbers! Couldn’t be happier. A few pics below.

The G stands for government contract. Not sure what the S means.

You got to be kidding me, you say this has been rebuilt twice and it still has its original slide!?!? Incredible! You scored! Wish we could all be that lucky.
Congratulations

I think CMP must have made a mistake, and will want it back so it can go to auction.
