Date of Manufacture

I'm curious about the manufacture date on your SBT. I have several and still put several hundred rounds a week through my 1921 Specialty, it just keeps on ticking and to this day, tight as a drum. It was my understanding that the SBT was introduced in 1917. While we learn that little is certain in the "world of Smith", a 1914 production serial number would certainly be an anomaly, it would predate the introduction date by 3 years. That would be really neat! Could you check your number again against our YOM records. You might have the first SBT sold! Love to know. So, I am sure, would Tom Breeden.
