I have an old catalogue (1986...) which describes a colicin reference
set that includes ColV, then available from:

    Plasmid Section
    National Collection of Type Cultures (NCTC)
    PHLS Central Public Health Laboratory
    61 Colindale Avenue
    London NW9 5HT
    Tel 0181-200 4400
    Fax 0181-200 7874

You could try contacting them, though it seems unlikely they'll have
survived 11 years of Thatcherism.

Best wishes,
