Hey Guys,
I've been tasked with disposing of a pair of 1911s for a friend of mine (who was the Sheriff you didn't run from).

One of them is a Swartz Safety Colt (# C2000XX). It's in just slightly more worn condition than this pictured Colt, but the wear is from carrying, not from poor storage. He might be able to dig up some provenance, and has a story, about this gun being pressed into service for the Army National Guard for harbor patrol.

The other is this pictured 1911A1 from 1940. 1940 was a slow year for Government contracts, and this is one of less than 5000. This is also the only year that Charles Reed inspected, so this mark is kinda of the uncommon side.

If you guys could kind of give me an idea on values, I'd greatly appreciate it. We've had guesses in the $3-5K range, but that's still a pretty big range, and I might just be missing something. Our local resident expert (John Holbrook) decided to move to Montana last year.
