IN 98% EXCELLENT ORIGINAL CONDITION, WE HAVE A RARE AND HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER COLT COMMANDO REVOLVER WITH THE RARE WARTIME 2 INCH BARREL. THIS COMES WITH A VERY INTERESTING AND UNUSUAL COLT FACTORY LETTER WHICH STATES IT WAS A ONE GUN SHIPMENT ON AUG 1, 1944 TO WILLIAM CASE, WHO WAS  A POLICE OFFICER IN AKRON OHIO.  APPARENTLY HE WAS ATTACHED TO THE VICE SQUAD AS WE FOUND A REFERENCE TO HIM IN A SEPT 4, 1944 AKRON NEWSPAPER IDENTIFYING HIM AS A MEMBER OF THE VICE SQUAD.  HOW HE HAD THE PULL TO GET THIS PISTOL DIRECTLY FROM COLT’S AT THAT TIME IS MYSTERY, BUT HE SURE KNEW SOMEBODY.  PERHAPS WE SHOULD CALL THIS THE “COLT VICE-MASTER REVOLVER”!
