    I know the 92 is a rack number and 6 39 in adoption date but what does SHE LNS mean? Only person I’ve seen identify these was Tony E, any way to contact the guy running his website now?

    Hello all, New to the forum but longtime lurker. I'm currently looking at a Smith Corona1903a3 serial number 3637774, with a barrel date 4-43. From what I've researched this seems correct, but what concerns me is that there are no other viable barrel markings other than the date. Were 03a3...
