When Colt rebuilt these pistols for the military contract they simply peened over the commercial markings on the frame to obliterate them, then stamped the military markings right on top. The commercial/military transfer pistols are worth a considerable premium over a regular USGI Colt from the same time period, so make sure it's taken good care of and not turned into a shooter.
