I've had my P3's & P4's apart and know what they should look like, but I haven't ever broken down one of the Stainless steel models so I am curious what others think.
I'm in the same boat so take my post with a grain of salt.
I've seen G10 Police folders with the classic no choil handle shape in ATS55 but never VG10. I don't recall ever seeing a G10 Police 1 or 2 drilled for tip up carry.
A few things stood out to me in your photo:
Yellow: I've never seen the cut-out for the lockback spring terminate in a circle on any spyderco.
Orange: I've never seen a backspacer that doesn't fully envelope a body screw.
Green: I've never seen a lockbar mating surface cut out to that shape on any Spyderco lockback
At first I thought it might be a really late run Police 2 in VG10, but after seeing the insides I'm much more suspect.
I'm no expert on the Police 1 & 2 either way.
