As Guy says, the five-digit V-serial puts the Victory into mid-1942, maybe August.

For an early Navy gun, it is in comparatively very nice condition, and the stamp is very crisp and pristine. Usually, the earlier the serial, the crummier the condition as those saw the longest use, and since only the earlier Navy-shipped revolvers were stamped US NAVY, it’s less common to see a nice one.
