This incredible 1917 .45 Army has a very unique history, having been purchased by WWI veteran S.W. Gray directly from the War Department through the Civilian Marksmanship Program in 1930. There are three original letters and the envelopes included, one from Mr. Gray dated November 5, 1930 placing his order which included his $16.65 payment, a letter confirming the order from the War Department on November 10, 1930 and the shipping ticket which lists the gun by serial number on November 21, 1930. The gun was recieved by Mr. Gray at his North Canton, Ohio home address just a few days later on November 25th. Included with the gun is a copy of a unit picture featuring S.W. Gray among other North Canton, OH soldiers on Memorial Day 1919. He is in the top row 15th from the left.
The gun comes in the original box which also bears S.W Gray’s name and remains in truly outstanding condition from end to end. The gun is all numbers matching including the smooth walnut service grips and retains virtually 99% of the original satin blue finish with some minor scattered light handling marks and tiny scratches which must be sought out. This is fantastic boxed 1917 Army with a documented history and unique provenance, that will be impossible to ever upgrade or duplicate, which will add value to any high grade collection!
