#2 son picked up a Heinz 1911. Colt slide, 1911A1 frame with a 1911 hammer & & grip safety, looks like an arsenal rebuild. Inspector stamps GHD on left of frame, P below magazine catch, very faint crossed cannons in a circle on right side opposite safety. US property stamps, long serial number, parkerized finish.

I was never a collector, anyone have a clue who might have made the frame? Springfield?

Anyone have any faint guess on the crossed cannon imprint?

The crossed canons were ordnance acceptance mark.
