Thank you! Everything you have said here corresponds with my own online research concerning Sanderson grips.

I totally forgot that I had never uploaded any pictures of my Sanderson's.

Here you go for your reference and enjoyment:

N Frame Walnut





N Frame Maple (Tiger Maple?) Interesting little side note, these are stamped 53 as are the beat up pair shown below, maybe that is significant for those of you that collect these that the number may have nothing to do with the particular model they fit.





I believe the next 2 sets are for a 1911









And just got these for $15 on e-bay. Figured they'd be a fun little long term project and a chance to practice some checkering. They are somewhat worn, have some modifications, a big bald spot in the checkering, and need some serious work. The right panel was covered with some sort of filler that came off after soaking in Tuolene for a couple days. No clue what they are for. Any ideas?





And then there's these but they probably belong in the mystery stock thread because I don't believe they're Sanderson's but they do have the same type of hardware and grip screw. Too bad there lefty.

Daniel, that last set of "customized" Sandersons fit a High Standard pistol. Or used to, anyway.

I saw it said here that the numbers on the inside of the grips were to keep pairs together during the making of them. Does that mean the lower the number the earlier the grips?


ETA: I found this on a Colt forum.

"I have been in contact with Janet Snyder who is Lew Sanderson's grand daughter and Don Sanderson's daughter. I had asked her if she could shed any light on the numbers that were stamped on the inside of the stocks. She checked with her brother who worked with her dad making the stocks. Here is her reply:



Cam

Just an update on your question about the numbering of the grips. I spoke to my brother and he said the grips were given a number which coincided with the purchasers name. So it was two-fold identified left/right grip and who ordered the grips.

Straight from my brother who worked on the grips with my Dad.


Jan"




My set that came on a Model 14 no dash from a California pawn shop.

I initially thought that there had to be more than 99 unique customers/pairs as most stamped numbers were two digits. I am now thinking it was to identify unique customers/pairs while they had orders in the shop, so once an order was completed, the two digit number could be re-used.
