Default S&W Model 25's MFG Yr

I just acquired, after some discussion here, 2 S&W Model 25's.
Model 25-2 45 Cal Model 1855, on barrel, Serial # N689038
Model 25-5 45 Colt Ctg, on barrel, Serial # N679086
Both have pinned barrels, excellent shape. Neither have recessed cylinders.
I would like to know the years of manufacture for both.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Bob

45 colts never came from the factory with recessed cylinders only the magnum calibers and the 22 rim fires. I have a pinned and recessed 45 colt, but I made the cylinder from a recessed 44 mag cylinder.

I didn't know that, but I did wonder about it. Thanks for the information.
