In 96 & 97% condition, we have a UNIQUE CONSECUTIVELY NUMBERED PAIR OF very elusive Union Switch & Signal made US WW2 1911A1 Pistols. This is the only known pair of consecutively numbered Switches to have turned up. Realistically, the US&S is the most sought after 1911 Pistol by collectors and is the one rare 1911 that is obtainable by any serious collector. Because of the du-lite finish, they have a very distinctive bluish look. These pistols were made in Swissvale, PA which is a suburb of Pittsburgh and they made the smallest number of pistols of the main 4 WW2 contractors at only around 55,000. This is minuscule compared to the other contractors, even Ithaca made 400,000. Finding one this mint and all original is a pretty big deal!
These pistols are top examples of a late early production and were produced in of June, 1943. They are the “Lazy P” proof variation, refereed to this way because the P proof on top of the slide lays sideways from the axis where they are normally stamped. They are both 100% factory original and in mint condition with a mint bore as well. . You will also notice the very distinctive milling on the barrel bushings that you only see on US&S production. This is a wonderful chance to study them both as a pair. This is a unique offering that will be the pride of the most advanced collections.
