Your serial number is missing a digit, the serial number 19781 is a first model and the B suffix is from a third model gun.

the 3-leaf sight does match the barrel finish but on the Cody cert there is no mention.  the SN is 19781B  

If the 3 leaf is in good shape I wouldn't complain.  It may be worth more than the standard sight it should have?  When no sight is mentioned on the Factory letter it means it came with the standard sight. Usually wrong sights don't bother me.  Finding a correct one is part of the fun of collecting.  What's tuff is finding a special order sight that is missing.

Thanks Chile, Its in the survey now. I never ran across a 73 with a 3 leaf express that lettered.
