SERIAL NUMBER 13184
C. MICHAEL SHYNE
Here is one of my Thompsons
from my collection. The gun
was originally sold to the Indi-
ana State Police, probably to
combat the crime sprees of John
Dillinger and simular gangsters.
Under the rear grip is stamped
"Indiana State Police" four
times. Also stamped is the letter
"N" or "Z", probably a Colt/
AO inspection marking.
THE REAR PISTOL GRIP IS
STAMPED 'INDIANA STATE POLICE'.
