Welcome! A 7 yr member and nice 1st post. That s/n shows your 25-5 should have been shipped sometime in 1988. The only wooden box I'm familiar with is the 125th anniversary edition. There may be others tho. BTW, you've been here long enough to know that you have to show us some pic!!!

Nice find there, I agree we need a pic! It has the alphabet serial number so the cylinder throats should be good. Let us know how she shoots, enjoy that one.
