Your Python was made in 1980.

The only public listing of Colt production numbers and serials is R.L. Wilson's book
"Colt: An American Heritage". This is considered by Colt to be the "official" history of the Colt company.

The back of the book has all known production data from 1836 to 1985 when the book was written.

Wilson also sells just the production numbers in a small booklet.

Only Colt can supply data after 1985.
