If I read the chart correctly, your gun was made in 1913 and was one of 19,150 made that year by Colt.

Very nice, a true 1911. Not sure of the value, but if you are happy, who cares. Congrats

What I think we have here is a troll. With a name like "nutsfor1911" I would tend to believe he knows what he has and the value for that condition, 3G's for pristine. That number would put it around early 1918.

The picture clearly shows SN 28900x as he claims and as Flintrock suggests, that puts the manufacture date between 1915 and 1918 and it is a Colt SN. What's the problem?

It is an original 1911 not a 1911a1 but with the blue replacement parts on a parkerized pistol, its a parts gun right now...blued replacement parts make it other than original pistol.
