Default .38 Military & Police (Postwar) – “Pre-Model 10”

Looking at a .38 Military & Police (Postwar) – “Pre-Model 10”. I go home and try to read up on it in the SWSC and now I'm totally baffled and hoping some of you out there can clear up the confusion.

It's serial number S86746x which puts it somewhere between 1945 and 1948 meaning it's definitely a "Postwar" model. But it has the single line "Made in U.S.A." on the right side and the catalog states very clearly that the Postwar models all have the four line address of “Made In U.S.A., Marcus Registradas, Smith & Wesson Springfield, Mass.” on the right side.

Does that mean this is some kind of weird Transitional Model? Any wisdom you can share will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
