My Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson book doesn't specifically list the "ABR" prefix, but does have several other "AB_" prefixes around it. This indicates to me an approximate year of 1983 or 1984 for the year of your Model 60.

Any other numbers or marks are irrelevant/unknown to me.

32547 is an assembly number; you’ll probably see it on the lower right side of the grip frame. The others are inspector or fitter marks.

I have a model 60 no dash with serial number AEZ58XX and it was manufactured in 1984. Hope that helps.

My ABH98XX has, from top to bottom, 14XX2 and then a larger S oriented with the length of the frame and then a very light B16 (I think) under the s and oriented the same as the first numbers. I never paid them any attention before. I'm guessing mine is a 1983 ship as I think that's when I bought it.
