Talking Request M15-3 S/N "birthdate", please?

Hi folks!

I bought from my local armorer, today, a Model 15-3, four incher with wood grips in nickel (factory job -- trigger and hammer still case colored), for "Three and change". All stampings are crisp, including other numbers on crane, one encirled.

I am requesting the wisdom of "the elder monks of the Temple of Smith and Wesson", as to the birthdate of this fine piece.

The S/N in question is: 5K145xx. My armorer said all tolerances were tight. Action, (as posted article suggested to test piece in store before buying), had no sloppiness, nor time lag, nor mechanical movement when not desired.

Thank you, and Happy Yule!
