I tried to look-up the serial number to find out the date this Officers Model Match 22. 1953 numbers were too low & 1954 started high so I guess it was late 1953 but I'm not sure I was looking at the right number sets. (Officers) #673** There wasn't a set of numbers there specifically for "Model Match"

The other Colt is a perfect (looks like it was never shot) 38 special 'snub-nose' Agent. #123***LW. I believe the numbers make it a 1962 (again not 100% sure)

The other 2 revolvers are SW so I won't bother you with those questions I have.

Thanks for any help on the Colts.

Colt serial numbers are often weird. They often put the same model in .38 in one range and the same model in .22 in another.
The Officer's Model Match .38 with serial 637XXX was made in 1952.

The Agent is a 1962.

The Officer's Model Match isn't a .38 it is a .22 & only has 5 numbers not 6 numbers like the .38

The personal reply I received on this subject pointed out the difference as far as looking-up the date by numbers. I couldn't reply back with my thanks because of being new to the forum & not completeing 5 replies (?). SO Thanks to 1A1

I am so rookie I don't even know how to 'like' someone. Thank you for your contribution.
