Default Old ww1 colt question

Got a co-worker that had a Colt 45 that was handed down the line. He is curious how rare it is or how valuable. He has no knowledge of the gun other than he thinks it was issued in World War 1, maybe to a grandparent that wasnt suppose to keep it? Somewhere along the lines it was probably taken when it was not suppose to be. We are deducting that because it looks like the serial numbers were scratched off.

Here are the numbers on the piece.

1908
1911
1913


Any of yall have any insight on this piece or can point me to an article about it? Im figuring without the serial number it may be very hard. I can ask him if he can try and make out any of them at all if having few numbers would help.

Thanks much
