I'm looking to get both of these for my collection. Any advices on what other limited Colts should I be looking for?

Also interested in these but no info on them regarding production volume:

Colonel Colt (by Lew Horton) http://www.yothinfirearms.com/Handguns/Colt/God-Created-Man.html
Colt National Match Royal Stainless Gold Cup TALO Exclusive
Colt 1911 Presentation Grade (http://www.yothinfirearms.com/Handguns/Colt/Colt-1911-Presentation-Grade.html)
Colt El Caballo Deoro Maximo (http://www.yothinfirearms.com/Handguns/Colt/El-Caballo-Deoro-Maximo.html)

No advice from my post. The Sam Colt Signature by Lew Horton looks like great option.

The Colt Tier III is my idea of a canebrake Centennial 1911.

The 2011 Centennial Edition?

The rest on your list are way too baroque for my taste.

In this post it refers to what I (canebrake) would want in a Centennial 1911.

The term canebrake is what us southern boys call a Timber Rattlesnake.

Crotalus horridus, the "timber rattlesnake" or Canebrake.
