Yeah, you got me.... Or im 26 and that i just got a rare piece of history that i know nothing about besides.. its a 1950s .410 Smith feild grade thats serial number 8th to last going off fws56796 wich was the highest numbered gun. I also know that its 1 out of 2,375 (1913-1950).
So what i dont know is how many field .410 where after mine and the only way to find that out is if the story is right... So going off the info that the highest number .410 was fws56790 that would mean mine could fall in as one of the last three .410 Smiths(in the Ledger) to get its number. Possibly the second to last .410... so i know i need to pull papers on my 2 L.C.'s and aswell as fws56789 to find out what cal.and grade she was. but some things i feel wont be in the report like
how many field grade .410?
why number would be restamp on some guns?
If the number changes are in records?
What is the highest number .410 field
So if you are reading this here it is in a nut shell what i know and what i dont know.... Correct me if im wrong, add to the story. either way if you know the answer im looking for please get back to me thanks
