Is there any increase in value of a Lead-Lease (British Proofed) M1911A1 over a non-marked M1911A1? If an increase, how much? Appreciate any input. Thanks.

British Proof

Does the pistol have British military or commercial proof marks?

If commercial it does not mean Lend Lease, but simply that the gun was in the UK at some time. It could be something as simple as the fact that it passed through Interarms Manchester or London warehouse and therefore had to be British proofed by law.
