    i'm interested in the manufacture date of a Iver Johnsons Arms 32 with a serial no. B 88615. It's in fair condition. Thank You.

    Welcome to the forum but more info or photos are needed, as the B serial number prefix was used on .32 small frame hammerless black powder models 1896-1902, and again on smokeless powder models 1909-1918.

    List the patent dates and where they are marked.

    On the butt of the grip there is a patent date of NOV. 17,08 and under that, PAT'S PENDING
    Actually according to the NRA guide for antique collectable guns, it may be very good condition.
    Thank you.

    Made in 1917, value maybe $150-$200 to an Iver Johnson collector if in that condition.
