Information on handed down L.C. Smith

I inherited an L.C. Smith 12 gage side by side with 30-inch barrels from my father. I was told my Great Grand Father had it specially made for his son (my Grand Father). I took it to a local gun smith, who suggested I write to you. Its stamped: PAT D MAR 29, 83; JULY 13, 86; OCT.5, 86 with the serial number is 3206. Under the barrel in the middle strip its stamped 5 E, 3206 and stamped NITRO trademarks on each barrel. On top between the barrels it stamped: MADE TO ORDER BY THE HUNTER ARMS CO, FULTON N.Y. It has two hunting dogs on both sides with a lot of engraving throughout the gun. It has been kept in its original leather case since my father took my brother and I pheasant hunting back in the mid-1960s, we all shot it. It's in great shape and I would like to know more. Like what year was it made? What does the 5 E mean? Is it in your records?
