Where can you locate the serial and model number on an Iver Johnson hammerless 38?

Before 1934, gun companies did not have to put serial numbers on handguns. From 1934 to 1968 only handguns had to have serial numbers, and rifles and shotguns only had them if the manufacturer wanted to put them on voluntarily. You might have an older Iver Johnson that was made in the early 1900s to the early 1930s that was made without any serial number. I'd take the grips off and look all over for any markings. If you want to identify this gun, register for some gun collector's website and read about old Iver Johnsons and post good clear pictures of yours, with close-ups of any writing or marks. Chances are some Iver Johnson collector will be able to tell you what you have and when it was made.

How do you tell the age of a Johnson outboard motor?

The year model for a Johnson outboard, is determined by use of the engine model number. The model number is recorded on a metal tag, for early models, riveted to the side of the stern, or clamp bracket. On late model engines, the number is displayed on a decal, affixed to the swivel bracket. PLEASE SHOW ME AN EXAMPLE
