Hi. I have a weakness for things that are new to me, Is it possible to date this device? Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Keith

Thanks. Does the serial number narrow the range?

Not that I can tell.  The very early ones have no serial number. I've never seen any information on date of production by serial number.

Thanks Sherman. I keep gravitating to artifacts that have little definitve information. The Reising 65 and mc 58s are another dark corridor

My father was a fan of the Reising guns. I am currently going through his papers if [when] I come across any thing on the 65 I will share it with you.
