    Can anyone help decipher what this is? The last two digits do not match the serial number either.
    This is stamped on the front strap of a six digit Colt that dates to 1917.

    Much thanks fellas...

    Not sure what the CT stands for. 52nd FA BDE, which the 104 was a part of, was out of NY.

    Very cool gun. But man I think Ray Charles could get off a tilt a whirl and line the markings/stampings up better. Hope you find out what it all stands for.
