It would have been cool for it to have been that old but at least now I can go shoot it! Always thought really low number, almost a model number. Proofhouse and the other sites I've seen don't cover the newer serial numbers.Another clue, especially on blued pistols, is around the stamps where metal is displaced, the finish will often flake off in microscopic chips that will leave a white shadow appearance around the letters. These marks will have a white or burnished appearance.Only by studying lots of pistols will one know what he is looking at, and that is getting to be more and more difficult. Also remember that when metal is stamped it is pushed a side and will create a ridge.(You must click the "search" button to get your results.The "enter" or "return" buttons will not initiate your inquiry).
