According to the Colt factory letter this very rare Colt was shipped from the factory on December 19, 1955 as one of an order of three special order nickel plated Match Target Woodsmans with ivory stocks. It was shipped to Mr. Justin Dart, President of the Rexall Drug Store chain. It is in new condition, with the original box and papers.
The only other known shipment of factory nickel plated 3rd series Woodsmans prior to the end of regular production was on November 1, 1955. That was an order of two Match Target Models, and was shipped to the Thompson-Diggs Co, Fresno, CA. Click here to see one from that shipment.
