I have found in the past when I looked up early guns with the WP they had repair and returns in the factory records. Circle P might be another story.
Also I guess it would have the slight chance of an early serial # and a late shipping date by several years. Checking the records would be a start. Email me some pics if you want.

Serial number 127977 (late 1901) is several years too early for proof marks. In my on going researh survey, Model 1894 serial number 260389 is the highest serial number I have found without proof marks. The next highest serial number I have in the survey is 264188, and it has proof mark stamps. All other serial numbers that I have found above that point have proof marks on them. Serial number 264188 went through the PR in April of 1905.
