Thanks for your help guys, I have to agree with Jim though. I have done much research on this Colt and feel %100 confindent that the serial number was never removed since there never was one. As Jim described, the Barrel does have "COLT D.A. .32" on it and on the left side of the frame under the latch, it does have "COLT'S NEW POCKET" in a circle. It also has the old style frame with a straight part above the trigger guard. I just wanted to feel comfortable in selling it as what it is and not an altered weapon. As one of you said it is illegal for ANYONE to one a weapon with an altered or filled off SN. To back up what Jim said I have read and talked to gunsmiths that have told me, there are some of these older Colts that were made without SN's.
