Re: Springfield Trapdoor Serial Number

Ernie, the "star" issue throws the numbers increasingly off during that period, up to about 20K at worst. Many more receivers were made than arms which were accounted for were assembled. The starred guns do not show up in the production tables (upon which the dates in the TD books are based)

You cannot have a cartouche earlier than what the receiver numbers REALLY are. The reverse (date later than number) case IS possible, due to receiver(s) not being used for some reason.
