Colt Service Model Ace with "70BXXXXX" Serial Number

Newbie question so it's pretty simple. Is it possible to have a Colt Service Model 22 with a "70B" prefix on the serial number? The gun doesn't mention "conversion" anywhere on the slide. Called Colt and they say it was made in 1983 and shows to be a Government model. Appreciate any help. Regards

Interesting that a couple of you think that a "70B" could be an Ace. The box is handwritten so it doesn't help me much. The slide says "Colt Service Model (ACE in the Diamond) .22 long rifle" on the left. Then just "Ace" on the right side. What period in time would the slide have been made.
Are there any other tell tails that I could look at on the gun to help determine what it is? Thanks for all your replies!!!
That's a great reply. Your gun and the box pretty much match the situation I'm talking about. The gun I'm talking about is s/n 70B504XX so it's close to your in production. What originally convinced you that the gun was not a conversion?
