If you're looking for one and this one doesn't pan out check ebay and gunbroker. Colt made 4 different versions between 1966 and 1969, they were royal blue with engraved slides and special grips representing 4 different major WWI battles. They made 5000 of each gun/display box set so they weren't really uncommon. Interestingly, even though they were produced in the '60s they used original style 1911 frames, not A1s. A few years ago you could find them unfired on gunbroker for a song, $800-$900, now they're up in the $1200-$1500 range, still pretty reasonable for an unfired pre-70 Colt built to WWI specs. I always thought one would make a great base for a retro build.

These Commemorative editions never seem to be very valuable/collectable.
Which is why I generally don't worry about "value" an' just shoot the snot outta 'em!
