Hello to all. Might anybody know why a Python would have a serial number that begins with the letters ATF? ATF is followed by five numbers, a dash and three numbers. In advance, thanks.

Two reasons:

1. It's some kind of ATF commemorative. Usually this would include some kind of engraving or fancy grips.

2. It was owned by ATF, either as an issued gun, or was seized by ATF, and ATF added it's own numbers.

Check for original serial numbers on the frame and crane, and inside the side plate.
