Hope that helps some.

That does not help because it is incorrect. I don't know how they got their information but it is incorrect. 1982 serial numbers were in the 5,0XX,XXX range with 5,100,XXX at the start of 1983. That Savage99 source states that any S.N. higher than 5,100,000 was made in 1982, even 7,983,243 was made in 1982. That is a fake number that was never made. I tried a real number, 1,240,7XX, Savage99 said it was made in 1943, 1944, 1945, 1946 ,1947, or 1948. Now what do you believe? That serial number was actually made in 1940! Per records in Cody Museum.
4,854,0XX was late 1980 or 1981.
P. S. This is not a poor reflection on Joe at all. He only suggested the database. It is the database that is in error.
