It obviously has a value. The ground markings would kill any collector value. WWI slides are not hardened so that kills shooter value. The CMP 1911s have increased demand for vintage slides but because of the ground markings I am going to say it is worth $75 to $100.

It came up elsewhere, it's not uncommon to see the U.S. Property Mark's removed on slides and frames.

I have seen so many with the US Property removed from the frame it is amazing. About half of all M1911 production was missing from inventory shortly after WW1. I decided, to me, this was a variation and I had to have one. I found a USN with all correct parts with the US Property gone. Being Navy, and having about a $1000 early barrel, it was not cheap but no regrets. It is amazing that the markings were not removed from the slide nearly so often but they are less clear to some. Sadly, thousands had their serial number removed also.
