I have the one my grand mother carried (excellent condition) and a few years ago a guy I worked with sold me one like it (not as nice). They look good together.

A very early (14xx) Colt Model N "Vest Pocket"... incredibly it sold dirt cheap on GB from a seller that usually gets good $$.
Threw a what-the-heck bid at it and won...

And an early (13xx) 1903 Type I Model M "Pocket Hammerless"

For RoadDawg:
Sam Lisker's coltautos website has pretty accurate S/N vs date tables.
Vest pocket dates:
http://www.coltautos.com/1908vppd.htm
Colt only recorded ship dates back then, not mfg and the S/N's were not necessarily shipped (or even assembled) in order.

Nice guys, I dig those Early Vest pockets , I have one myself that i bought local, guy walked into the shop with it and other stuff thrown in a gym bag and telling the dealer he wants to sell them on consignment soon as he pulled it out and gave me a price of 3-350 i said id take it . It still has grease in it and when i ran the serial i seem to remember it being 1909

This little Colt Jr was a recent score, one of the guys i talk to on FB hits me up and says his buddy at work wanted to sell it , we agreed on a price and so my buddy shipped it out that day for me.
