    in order to determine the exact manufacture date of any iver johnson firearm you need the firearms in front of you and to describe in full what type of firearms it is and the exact markings and where they are found. the main serial number location on 90% of all iver johnson handguns is on the left side of the grip frame under the grip, this is where most of the letter codes will be found.

    in short i can usually identify the age of 99.9% of iver iver johnson firearms but not from what is given here. there have been a lot of law enforcement depts. who have purchased my iver johnson book (including the batf) because it can be used to identify the age of most iver johnson handguns.
