I had also forgotten about this thread.  Since my Merwin Hulbert, it's been trumped by a Whitney Phoenix, then an Isaac Hollis Sporting rifle in .577 with a lock date of 1865.

Both Stainless and no prequel number, just the 4 figures.

Can anyone advise differently?

My oldest shootable stepchild is my First Model .32 Smith & Wesson Single Action. All numbers match and oddly enough the serial is the same as the year of production; 1878. Found the little 5-shooter in a pawn shop in Idaho.

1. Is a very early New Model #3 in .44 Russian made about 1878
2. Is a 4th Model .38 S&W DA with a 6" barrel, made about 1889.
My best,
