Current information places the Eagle/F Police range from 945568 (January 1945) to 949192 (March 1945) with an estimated quantity of 2,600 Model HSc.

Can't tell if the third digit is an 8 or 9 could you post the serial as the picture is somewhat fuzzy.










946518

So I know this is a old thread but most of the photos are no longer valid. And the 2 that are left it's hard to tell if it's a blued or phosphate pistol. Anyone remember what it is?

Pardt,
I appreciate your following through on this forum also.  I was about to post here also.  This appears to be a true phosphate example and an E/F though as you indicate it is difficult to tell based on the two photos.  To my eyes it actually appears to be representative of the early phosphates, both police and army, that came out in early 1944.  It appears the barrel is phosphate finished also which I consider characteristic of these early phosphate "prototypes".  I use prototype as the theory put forth by Allan and Peter is that this "short run" was used as a demonstration of the phosphate finish for the military and police contracts. 

This appears to be a left over of  "prototype" phosphate that was brought out for finishing during the later stages of the production and finished as an E/F.  Regardless, if the finish can be confirmed, it is indeed a phosphate E/F. [/size] Your research efforts are[/size] are appreciated.....Hopefully, Murton can respond or Jim could perhaps clarify.

Rob and Pardt:  Strange actions by Murton, seems like he completely bailed out of this thread, deleting all his posts.  Makes me wonder about his motivations.

Anyway, my notes from his original post and photos have Eagle F 946518 as Blue.  I know it looks Phosphate in Jim's resized photos but there might have been some color lost in the process.

Rob, the Phosphate Prototypes you brought up go back to earlier serials 881321 to 896889 so would not be a part of this serial number.

Thanks for popping in Allan!.  I realize the prototypes phosphates are in a different serial range (early 44) but Murton's version appears to have the phosphate finished barrel I generally connect with the prototype phosphates.  That is my point.....not a match for the later production phosphates I have seen.  Or have you seen/recorded phosphate barrels in "production" phosphates of 1945?

Interesting discussion but, no, I don't record/watch for Phosphate Barrels so can't add anything along that line of thought.
