What year was the Ithaca gun model 37 serial number 383952 made?

I have a model 37, serial number 384854, that was given to me new in 1957. Presuming that serial numbers are assigned consecutively, your model 37, serial number 383952 is likely to have been made in 1957 or 1958.

Add: 8-8-09 The above writer appears to have been given "new old-stock" back in '57, and was gifted with a Model 37 manufactured in 1951. See: http://forums.gunbroker.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=226627&SearchTerms=ithaca
