Just discovered this thread -- not sure how I missed it before -- but here goes:

I have #5305, which I've had John Kopec authenticate. I inherited it from my grandfather, who passed away some years ago. The only document I've found in his records that indicates how acquired it is a single page from what appears to be a typed listing of firearms for sale. There are four other SAAs listed on that page -- #886, #9460, #18992 and #140064. I'm hoping that by determining who that listing was from that I can trace the history of my SAA. Any input would be appreciated!

I'm frequently asked where I find new serial numbers to add to my database. Here's a good example. The first link below will take you to an article entitled "A Firearms Treasure Hidden in Plain Sight" by Phil Spangenberger in the Feb/Mar 2020 edition of True West Magazine. It describes Colt SAA SN: 255919 once owned by Maj. Gordon W. Lillie, better known as noted frontiersman, Wild West showman, and sharpshooter "Pawnee Bill."

I added this new serial number, along with several others that I recently came across, to my Mar 3, 2020 update (the second link below). Be sure to refresh your browser to get the latest version.
