Just got a re-finished 45 auto. Everything buffed. Only thing I can read is UNITED STATED PROPERTY No 1718322 Anyone know what year this might have been made?

Lot of needed info there. What make is the frame? Colt, Rem Rand, etc. Was it a rebuild from CMP? Your best bet is the CMP 1911 forum or you can research it yourself on coolgunsite.com
Good luck

The problem is that no writings show except what I have on my post. It was someone who really liked to buff !!

According to the website oldguns.com the serial number listed above is for a Model 1911A1 made by Colt in 1944. Hope this helps. All the best...

My 1911A1NM is a Colt of that time period. Colt ceased production in 44. Top end is the later hardened slide.
