I have an Erie 77 and just got the brass plate clean enough to read.

Can anyone tell me about when it was made?

Serial Number: A-140334. (Edit: This is not the serial number after all; the serial number block has only the letter "F" and no numbers at all...

Thank you in advance

Is there another letter in front of the "A"?

Actually, the number I provided is NOT the serial number. The serial number) has only the letter "F" and no numbers at all...

The serial number is on your tag, it’s just worn down. When I zoom in on the picture, I can make out “FA” then a few numbers might be missing, then I can see a 7 and what looks like a 9, and then I don’t know if there were any numbers after that. (The 79 is under the “AL” in the word serial).

Try taking a few more pics with your phone in different lighting and zoom in on them.

If it starts with FA it was made in January of 1946. Richard
