I just got my first SAA and am trying to figure out what I have. Here is the address of my photo album for the piece http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/dylong/album?.dir=4260re2&.src=ph . First the serial number is 46XX. I have a “Dates of Manufacture” book by R.L. Wilson that indicates it was born during 1874 (second year of production). However the last patent date is Jan 19 75. How is this possible? The next question is: I only see one serial number stamped on the frame; every part (including the frame) is stamped 432 and also has a “B” on it. All the SSA that I see posted on the web have the serial number on just about every part. Does anyone know what this means? The piece has been expertly restored and is in perfect mechanical condition the bore is excellent. The grips are genuine ivory (replacements). Could a get a consensus on it’s value? Thanks in Advance.
