Clackamas Interest?

This forum seems to be focused on late model Kimbers. I have collected original series guns since the start. I have two unfired Clacks that I'm considering selling, is there any interest here? If so I will list them.

List them on the forum, I'm sure there are people here that would be interested in them.

I am embarrassed to say I do not know what a Clackamas is.

Originally, in the way back, the long long ago, Kimbers weren't marked "Yonkers, NY" even though that's where they were made; they were marked "Clackamas, OR" because that's where the corporate office was. I'm not sure exactly why this was necessary or thought to be a good idea, but only the first few thousand came out that way.

It's the original Custom Classic with a Clackamas roll mark.

The first roughly 8,000 or so 1911's Kimber made still had the Clackamas, OR. roll mark. While the purchase of Kimber by Jericho was done, the FFL had not yet transferred to New York from Oregon so Kimber was obligated to mark these first guns Clackamas, OR. Clackamas S/N's ran from 1001 to approximately 8000 nobody is sure exactly how many were made. Not only had the FFL not been transferred, but the old Jerico plant had no place to shoot the guns. All the guns were shipped out to Oregon to be shot, tested for accuracy and given a final quality check. They were then shipped back to Yonkers for any needed repairs or to be sold to dealers.
