So in an earlier post I wanted to see if I should restore my .38super 1911 which was an overwhelming leave it be. Now it has me looking into the history of the thing and also has me wondering what exactly is it. The serial doesnt exactly match anything on the websites and its kind of frustrating. Does anyone know a way to figure out what the hell this thing is or how old it actually is? Thanks for the help in advance.

Looks like your Colt 38 super was made in 1948.

It costs money... You have to call them to get a record search started.
