Probably at midnight, December 31, 1968, when they were required by the Gun Control Act of 1968.

SOME guns had serial numbers in the late 1800s. They were required by law on handguns and machine guns in 1934 (in the US) and on rifles and shotguns in 1968.

About 1886, if the marking is J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co.

It began in the 1800s. In 1934, US law required SNs on all handguns and machineguns. In 1968 law required them on rifles and shotguns. Prior to 1968, some long guns had serial numbers, some did not.

Made in 1910.The serial numbers of the model 1901 started where the model 1887 shotgun left off.the serial number start for this model is 64856.It should be noted that some serial numbers were skipped between 1904-1920.Total production was 13,500 shotguns including the serial numbers skipped.My records indicate that your shotgun was made in 1906.

Pretty much from the first time someone wanted to know how many were being produced <><> And when folks needed to account for WHO had WHICH gun, when they were same model and make. Serial numbers for military arms began around the mid 1800s. By US law, they were not REQUIRED for rifles and shotguns until the 1968 Gun Control Act.

Serial numbers that started w/23000 are dated form 1911-1912 . 1912 serial numbers start w/ 26000

I believe these were made in 1966 and 1967 only. 1966 serial numbers start at 1869776 1967 serial numbers start at 2097280 also look at oldmerc.com

The serial numbers dont go that low on Detective Specials. They start around 325000. Are you missing one of the numbers?

No specific characters. Glock serial numbers for a long time now have been 3 letters, then 3 numbers.

Believe that your serial number is incorrect. There are no BT99 serial numbers that start with 47. There are however serial numbers that begin with 74 which is the year (1974)that they were made.

1969 = serial start by 932 and 1970 by 032

Depending on who the writer is, Ithaca started making doubles sometime between 1880-1883. They had serial numbers from the very beginning. There were several models, Baker, Crass, Lewis, Minier and Flues, usually named after the individual that made a significant improvement.

Ranger serial numbers start with a "G". DOB on these is circa 1985.

The serial numbers on small-size US $1 silver certificates are in the same place as the serial numbers on modern $1 bills - the lower left and upper right corners of the open area on the bill's face. Serial numbers on $1 and $2 bills have 10 characters - a letter, 8 digits, and another letter. $5 and higher denominations have 11 characters, with 2 letters at the start of the serial number.

G9730255 is not a complete serial number for an antique Singer sewing machine. The serial numbers always start with two letters, which are used to identify the year they were made.

I purchased my model 311 back in 1968, as a used shotgun. I was told it was factory made with no serial number. I dont know mfg date, but this will maybe start you in the back dating process.

That would have been built in 1927, according to the run of serial numbers, 300000 marked the start of 1928 production. Paul

That is not enough information. You also need the make and model of firearm. Many manufacturers start with a serial number of 001 then count up as they make more. Other manufacturers choose their numbers other ways, but the numbers are almost always chosen by each manufacturer, so different models of firearm could have matching serial numbers.

January 1, 1969, as required by the Gun Control Act of 1968.

Since the 1977 model serial numbers start at: 9A254045, and the 1978 model numbers start at: 9A276935, my best guess would be that your MF-285 is a 1977 model. Source page: http://www.tractordata.com/farm-tractors/000/7/7/775-massey-ferguson-285.html
