    Is it blue or park? Is that appropriate for the serial number range?
    How "correct" the pistol is helps determine the value as well as condition. Is the frame an RR as well as the slide and do the conditions match? What does the barrel look like? Do all the external parts like backspring, hammer, safety and slide stop all have the same chequering?
    Pictures would be nice.

    You could see as little as $500 and as much as $1,000 - $2,000 depending upon some other small details.

    hso is right in that to give a correct answer requires a more complete description. At this point all I can tell you is that it apparently was made toward the end of Remington-Rand's production in 1945. You should be able to find a government inspector's stamp F.J.A. (Col. Frank J. Atwood) on the side of the frame, near the back of the trigger guard. What ever the value is will depend on how original it is, both in the context of finish and replaced parts (if any).

    If it's on the back half of production then it will be parkerized and drop in value compared to the earlier blue.

    No, the serial number indicates it was one of the last made, as World War Two came to an end, and yes - it should be Parkerized.

    A larger issue is if it was "liberated" by a serviceman following the war, or did it remain in service and go through one or more rebuilds. That could have a substantial effect on the value.
