Here's mine:
Serial# 1454xxx, shipped by Ithaca to the navy supply depot in Oakland, California on May 24, 1944. Ithaca made over 300,000 1911A1s for U. S. Government between 1943 and 1945.

The initials "FJA" on the left side of the frame stands for Col. Frank J. Atwood who was the inspector of 1911A1s made by Ithaca and Remington Rand. "G.H.D." on a 1911A1 frame means Gen. Guy H. Drewry who was in charge of inspection of guns made by Colt. Kilolima's 1911A1 has a Colt frame with an Ithaca slide.
