I think these will be in a separate category in collecting - worth a small premium / given a pass for being an arsenal rebuild. I think its shooter category, low end collector original, CMP release (the earlier DCM are worth more, assume they were rebuilds?) and then original - untouched

I prefer it to be original condition, but if it is going to be rebuilt, I would like it to marked as such, so that I can know who did it.

Received a late JSB that had no rebuild markings, really don't know why it was reparked, metal looks new. Came with a US&S slide.

Further to the conversation, I was wondering if those who are following these 1911s have a feel for the percentage of marked vs. unmarked rebuilds, and if any of the "museum" guns have been observed with any rebuild marks. My Ithaca/Colt does not have any rebuild marks, yet some have argued that they are all marked, but covered by an aggresive re-park. The number of un-marked guns leads me to believe that is not the case at all. I welcome an ongoing discussion of this.

Mine has a smooth even re-parkerization, with absolutely no trace of a rebuild mark of any kind. The original Colt markings are clear on the frame, including the crossed cannons ordnance stamp. I have no idea of numbers, but it seems like there are more unmarked re-builds than I would have thought.

I love the ANAD 7-76 rebuild marks on mine. Even stickied for an Anniston A-1. I don't see it having any real impact on value. Correctness is key for high end collectors and a rebuild is a rebuild, which I do see becoming it's own collecting sub category as time roll on. For most regular people all that matters is the military provenance.
