My guess would be collectors used a white crayon to accentuate the lettering. It is done alot with German WWII weapons.

Mike,
Go to the corner!

Hawk,
This is an age old joke on the board about factory "white" lettering, don't mind us!!!
( but if you do come across any pieces that are actually factory "white", hold onto them! Thier worth a bundle!)

Okay Mike, make some room in the corner, I'm coming! smile.gif

The only thing rarer than factory white-lettering are $8K Colt TSMGs!

Arthur,

Perhaps you knew on January 7th that it was a Colt drum, but I was not certain until I checked the lettering/fonts against Doug's drum book. I don't carry it with me and do not have it memorized like you apparently do. I am just glad that Hawk has such a nice drum to hang on that Tommy.

Are you planning to attend the TCA Show and Shoot in August? It would be nice to talk face to face.

Regards,
Roger

Mike/Zamm,

When I got my white lettering kit from Brownells, it came with a bonus - an original GOLD lettering instrument. Does that mean I too can now have a Midas Thompson? (This corner sure is getting crowded!!) biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

If Arthur F tells anyone who he is at any gunshow, it will be an act of God. If I were him I wouldn't show my face either. A colt junkie like him never changes. West Hurley=junk and Colt's=God. Whatever.

Join the talking tommorow AF and we will see who you really are.

Are you in Georgia AF?
