Default 1953 5" Combat Masterpiece

I wanted to thank the experts here on the forum for all the info on this interesting old K frame. I originally hoped that it was 1 of the 365 guns special ordered for the Missouri State Highway in 1952. Through everyone's help it appears to be 1953 manufacture, most likely using up the remaining parts. Based on some of the comments regarding the uniqueness of this gun I sent for an archive letter from S&W, I will post the information from that once I receive it. The grips are early unrelieved factory target stocks that someone has put a fair amount of effort into checkering and styling. If anyone can provide more details please do so, I greatly appreciate everyone's help so far!
