I guess the A 9 80. The A would stand for Anniston or maybe Augusta. Most marking I've seen has two letters; so they might have left one off?
Makes sense as it looks too nice to be 73 years old

Nice pistol, I think this is what everyone was hoping for condition wise. Question on the case it shipped in, anything special or just a plain plastic case?

There was another 1911 that showed up recently with the A rebuild mark from 1980. Anniston was using ANAD around the trigger area of the frame so I’m not sure who this is. Augusta had previously been AA.

very nice OP WOW !!!!!

my take on the A 9 80 is ( drum roll ) A = Anniston ,9=September, 80= year rebuilt

take that with a grain of salt but it is what I think it is

Just a plain plastic box. But heavy with thick foam. Plenty of protection. Also included a new in the wrap one piece cleaning rod dated 07/04. Would have been made for the M9 but maybe the same rod that was issued for the 1911.

Headed to the cabin today for opening day gun deer season. I plan on taking the 1911 along to show the others. They will want to inspect it in detail so I’ll get a few pics of the parts and post them I’ll have to keep a close eye on one of the devil dogs. Sure he will want to take it home.
