Serial Number 340461
Nickel Finish with Mother of Pearl Stocks

Colt 1908 Vest Pocket .25 ACP serial number 340461 - Pistol has old nickel plated refinish and factory mother of pearl stocks with early flush forward facing Colt medallions.  The forward facing flush medallions were only used for a few months during production.
