Serial number 153693 was made in 1929. What’s more, it’s engraved, which was an expensive option. Your gun has considerable collector value. The barrel should have a matching serial number stamped at the base of the barrel ring. And, on this one, the date code will be among the proof marks.

I don’t think any Superlights were made in Japan. But I’ll dig out my book tomorrow and see what it says.
