Hi S&WChad...Thanks a bunch for the info. This pistol is a WWII 38/200 dates to early 1940's, Serial #V25XXX, 5" .38 S&W, "United States Property" on top strap, bottom of frame has Ordnance bomb, "P", and initials GHD. The lanyard ring is intact. Help me understand the reference to 1954 and 1957. This pistol looks like an original lend/lease from early in WWII.
