Number 4365 appears to have no markings on the barrel and remains in its original .455 Webley configuration.

Jim, Below are pictures of the triple lock I did not win last week. It is serial number 444.

I will let you decipher the data from the pictures. I believe it is marked on the right side of the barrel the way the British do it. The pictures are pretty detailed.

I am pretty sure I won the right one with SN: 4365. Although, it cost a bit more.

I just acquired a S&W .455 Mark II, serial number 35284.
The LHS of the barrel:
SMITH & WESSON .455.

Note the full stop. Nothing on the RHS of the barrel.

It has been refinished so some of the markings are smeared looking. It has the Broad Arrow, etc., on the LHS upper rear of the frame. Other than the re-blue and replacement M1917 stocks, it is unmodified.

Haven't lettered it and probably won't, but from the data Jim has compiled, it looks like it probably shipped at the very end of 1915.
