Hi Ernie: thanks for responding the number is 430451 or 43045I.
Just after the "1" there is a burnished mark slightly bigger than the "0" in the serial number. it is almost the width of two numbers. I think that this is a rub mark that formed when the breach closes but maybe someone long ago wanted to rub out the last digits?
Is there any other place to look for numbers? Could this be one of those recycled units that had a star after the serial number? maybe someone filled in the star with lead or something that remained shiny
Anyway, thanks for any insight> Tim
