Default Request for Information: 2" Pre-War M&Ps

This may get long, so here’s the bottom line up front: I’m seeking information on “pre-War” (1933-1946) .38 Military and Police Model of 1905 Fourth Change revolvers with 2” barrels.

The search for information on a recently-acquired, early 2” M&P sent me down an rabbit hole, and through a series of fortunate events, some enthusiastic digging through old forum posts, and with the very kind and very generous assistance of some noteworthy S&W collectors and aficianados I find myself in possession of a small “database” of about 70 of these revolvers. Much of this information was originally gathered at great effort by Mike Pacella (“Pace40”) several years ago, and to prevent its potential loss I would like to make it available to the S&WCA. But before I submit what I have I’d like to cast a broad net in an effort to gather any additional information that might be in the possession of members of the S-W Forum.

Here is a list of serial numbers for which I am missing data:

frame = square butt or round butt
finish = blued or nickel
stocks = black hard rubber or walnut

597985 - ship location
598001 - ship date/location
598764 - frame, stocks, ship location
608700 - stocks
609059 - frame, finish, stocks, ship location
609441 - stocks
611997 - ship location
612672 - finish, stocks, ship date/location
614189 - frame, stocks
625012 - ship date/location
625519 - ship location
626366 - stocks
626537 - ship location
664258 - ship location
666157 - ship date/location
666247 - stocks, ship location
669452 - ship location
671213 - frame, stocks, ship date/location
675744 - ship location
676942 - ship date/location
676948 - ship location
681189 - frame, stocks, ship location
683367 - ship location
684152 - stocks, ship location
692432 - ship location
693543 - stocks, ship location
693560 - ship date/location, stocks
826149 - ship location
833809 - ship location
833889 - ship location

I have all or most of the relevant information (original configuration and ship date/location) on the following guns:

597812
608378
608745
608834
608953
609133
612577
614221
625385
625400
625587
625809
625819
626138
626184
626260
626261
626337
626519
663950
664295
672874
673153
676761
676851
676903
676959
678890
681148
681165
692427
692453
692456
694074
694101
694105
694106
694114
833915
833957

If you can provide any of the missing information, or if you have knowledge of any gun whose serial number is not on this list, I would appreciate it if you could send this information to me via the e-mail link in my profile. If sending information or photos via text message would be more convenient for you, just send me a PM, and I’ll reply with my phone number.

Out of respect for the privacy of others, there is no information on current owners in the database, nor do I retain this information in my own personal files.

Many thanks!
