An exercise in numbers, etc.

I noticed that Al has recently posted a couple more M1888s - of which there seems to be an inexhaustible supply! They are 527557 and 527692, which vary widely in condition. Mine just happens to be 527686 - nearly consecutive with the latter, yet is much closer to the lower example in condition. I know this is an isolated case, involving a microscopic sampling, but it does, by very small example, illustrate the danger in assuming that like-numbered guns saw the same usage.
