Are you sure there is not a letter in that serial number? Like at the end?
I'm aware of shiny nickel troopers, but not stainless.

The Trooper Mark III was never made in stainless.

Colt did offer the electroless nickel finish, both as "Electroless Nickel", and as "ColtGuard".

This is a satin finish which, being nickel, has a distinctive "yellow" cast.
