Just ran over to my local GS and what did I see newly added to their used/consignment display case... An Ithaca 1911A1, stamped "United States Property," "M1911 A1 US Army," and dated "1943." Completely stock, smelling of Cosmoline. Finish nearly like new... doesn't look like it was ever carried. Probably better than 95% Parkerized finish. Bore in great shape, felt very tight; trigger breaks like glass at about 8-10 pounds (just by my feel... no gauge to measure). I have read somewhere that Ithaca produced something like 370,000 1911s for WWII. Owner is asking $1799. That's a lot of money to me. If you know historical 1911s, what do you think of this price for an Ithaca in that shape?
