The gold crown is about the only visible difference up to early 1920's; afterwards the shooter could get more options such as the beavertail fore end and vent rib. Gold inlays, ivory beads, monograms, etc. were always available; but the HOT trigger unit and auto-ejector options weren't available on the earliest Grade 5 examples.|
