Default .45 colt 1911 U S Army

HI guys i am a firearm examiner and i am doing some research on a .45 colt 1911 u s army semi-automatic that does not have a manufacturer serial number.

What XV10010 means?

First, is the pistol a 1911 or a 1911A1? If the manufacturer was Colt, then an inquiry to Colt would be in order. In some cases a serial number may have been removed during refinishing, and another SN assigned by the BATFE, and stamped in its place.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

This is all probability a renumbered 1911. With out going into a detailed discussion go to YouTube.
This explains things very well.
