I have one in 38 Super that came with a flat smooth lanyard loop housing out of the box. None of my other Commanders came that way, but this one did, so there might have been a few extra MSH laying around that Colt just wanted to clear out. My serial number is less than 100 higher than yours. 70BS16**. The others have 70SC prefixes with 5 digit numbers and are the crappy nickle finish.
