This is a nice example of an early military version of the .45 Hand Ejector Model 1917. The serial number of this pistol is 45,639. While not pristine, the satin blue finish shows normal use - holster wear, and wear along the sharp edges. The uncheckered wood grips are also correct for the military version. A lanyard is missing on the bottom of the grip of this gun.
Augusta Arsenal inspection mark "AA" is stamped on left side of frame, but no evidence of any refinishing.
