Default Please decode this factory label

What year was shipped? how many produced? and what price range?

My SCSW 3rd edition don't have much info on it.

Thank you.

The code under "M640" appears to show a packing date of April 17, 2019 but the 640-1 went out of production several years ago - does it have the lock?

The SCSW 4 shows the SKU as "machine engraved, 2010" - perhaps the label date has a typo or the gun sat in inventory for 9 years? A call to the factory may clarify this.

Default 640-1

Mine came with a Special Presentation case! Bought at a gun show for $700.00 and the seller said he bought it new with the case!

My 640-1 was the first S&W I ever purchased and it was shipped in 1996.
