HIGH STANDARD PISTOLS: SEMI-AUTO, LEVER NAME SERIES These models were the fourth design evolving from the lever letter series with slight changes. This series followed the precedent set by the Olympic (G-O) of naming the models instead of utilizing letters. The upscale models, the Supermatic and Olympic, incorporated a rib dovetailed to the top of the barrel and a dovetail slot on the bottom of the barrel for mounting balance weights. This series continued the breech face shrouded by the slide design. Significant premiums can be asked for combination guns which have both barrels, if verified by factory records that the gun shipped as a combination. (Buyer beware - many "combinations" have been created after leaving the factory). Non-factory combinations should have additional value equal to the value of the extra barrel. Adjustable sight models continued to use the Davis sight. No guns in this series were offered with barrels incorporating the integral stabilizer but stabilizer barrels were offered in 1954 after the series ended. Most guns in this series utilized a single screw to retain the grips. However, the earliest Olympics used a screw for each side before changing to a single screw. Guns with original boxes and original papers can add significant premiums but, like the guns, the condition is very important, as is the requirement that the box be numbered to the gun. Serial number ranges are best estimates, and may change with further research. Those guns which have Curio or Relic status by virtue of being over 50 years old are noted C-R.
