    Please tell me this is a joke, not your question (Joken) but the item for sale.

    Looks like it might be legit from the number of bids this far . . . . ..

    Serial numbers matches a 1917 build. I'd damn sure have them break it open and show the matching numbers first

    What matching numbers? The only numbers (serial number) is on the right side.

    Informed sources tell me that the grips should have 15 lines of checkering between the diamonds. There is also relief around the off side of the mag release. Personally I don't know what they did on any given day in 1917. Something doesn't feel right to me though. I'm disappointed in you guys, not finding a bargain like this. $20k is walking around money for some folks.

    17k and counting (still four days in the auction) seems high but on the other hand everything looks correct, at least externally, and I’ve never seen one that clean before.

    Here say has it that this gun is up for sale again. It is said that some scammer won the bid, but more likely the owner had bid it up and the scammer was a ruse. Third hand dope. Ken
