Just inherited a real beauty. At least 85%, fantastic wood grips, checkered correctly, serial 104XXX. I am figuring about late 1915 manufacture, what should I insure it for? Lanyard rings on MSH and magazine bottom. Any comments would be helpful; will post picture when I get the time to do so.

Nobody can tell you anything without those pictures.
Please post lots of pictures of both sides of the assembled gun and pictures of it disassembled. Include close up pictures of ALL markings and proof stamps.

The experts here will need close up pictures of the individual small parts like the slide stop, barrel and recoil plug.
You can't post too many pictures.

You'll need those pictures anyway if you intend to insure it.

You might want to repost this in the sub forum for USGI/military 1911s. Your gun was built by the Springfield Armory U.S.Govt Arsenal - not the current company using their name.
