The letter to the right of the ser. no. identifies the particular model it is, unless it’s the first variant which lacks a letter.

Post the serial number and it will tell us when it was made and the probable variation.  These were made from 1919 into the 1950’s.  I don’t think a suffix was added until the mid 1930’s.  The earliest guns will have a finger groove forend.

Actually the last made was in 1980, the “E” variant.

Thanks Clarence.  I’m really pushing the envelope on post 1898 arms.
