Well, after all of the research and searching on this and other forums, finally ended up with an Ithaca 1911a1, serial #2644xxx. Late production, and based on my research, all original. Only negative is the finish is somewhat worn and pretty thin, but original. Not a real big deal to me though. I would rather have a thin original finish rather than a reparkerized finish. Price was ok to me. I will have pictures up later in the day. Now, regarding finish, I have heard that Ithaca finishes were thin to begin with. Any truth to it?
