COLT COMMERCIAL ACE PRE WWII 100% RARE PRESENTATION CASE  Guns > Pistols > Colt Automatic Pistols (1911 & Var)
Description: I believe the presentation of this 100% Colt Ace is one of a kind. I have searched the Internet image history and find no presentation box like it. Colt's letter states this Ace was mailed to Providence, R.I. on August 22, 1938, as a shipment of ONE to Belcher & Loomis Hardware Company, Providence, R.I. The stocks are not listed in Colt records. Nor is the presentation case. You can see that the ivory stocks carry the Colt stallion. The Oak presentation case carries the Colt Mfg. Co. logo. The 4 boxes of Kleenbore .22 cal. ammo appear about as old as 1938 and original to the box. All 4 boxes are full. Looking closely at the pistol it looks like it has been fired. The bluing and everything about the Ace, including the barrel and stocks, appear 100%. My research suggests to me that this may have been a presentation to an executive of Belcher et al from Samuel P. Colt, the son of Samuel Colt of Colt firearms. From newspaper articles and advertising of the period, the rubber trade and products business in Rhode Island was a big deal during the early 1900's. According to articles of the 20s, Belcher & Lommis took over Kelly-Springfield Tire Co. in 1921. Samuel P. Colt was the president and general mgr of Woonsocket Rubber, then Providence Rubber then U.S. Rubber, the largest in the U.S. Articles of that period link Colt with the Belcher company in a cooperative manner. Finding an article showing the presentation would have been great but no such luck. This pistol is pre- WWII and thereby qualifies as a C&R firearm.
