The date was 1/9/11 on the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the 1911. I bought three at a gunshow that day. One is a stainless Springfield that I will probably sell. The other two are a lnib Series 1 Kimber Custom, and a lnib Colt WW1 repro that I want to have a full custom build done on. Total cost to me for the three was $1200, so I think I did okay. Anybody else celebrate the "holiday"?
