    Marking on a GOVERNMENT 1968

    On the Net I've seen some pictures of a COLT Government dated 1968 with this strange (to me) marking under the mag release button; I don't recall ever having seen it before.
    I wonder if other 1911 aficionados more knowledgeable than me can recognize it.

    Before you start collecting 1911s .... buy books! Don't collect something that you'll be forever making excuses for, be careful not to get drawn to a piece that is not original, and buy the gun not the story.

    Well, if you can assume it's original bluing(not reblued), I would think it was put there by the factory, under the bluing? Perhaps you could contact them?
