Re: 1873 Trapdoor serial number search

Only if the number has already been found as part of the roughly 5% of production for which we have data.

AFAIK, NO ONE will search the archives looking for one specific number (there is NO "master registry" anywhere; such data is where you find it. Previous researchers, who knew exactly where to look, worked for tens - if not hundreds - of man/years, to assemble what little (the 5%) we have today.

Not at my books just now, but I'm sure someone will check it for you. LOOOOOOOOOOONg odds!!! Good luck.
