The earliest hammerless Prussian Daly's built on the (then new) A&D patent were numbered (apparently) starting from #1 - even though, obviously, there were Daly hammer guns being built for several years before the first hammerless design was made. I own Daly serial number #7 (with A&D patent use number of 65) which is identical to this gun except in 10 gauge. The earliest gun recorded thus far is #5. (Note that early hammerless sidelever Dalys built on the Lefever patent do NOT share this serial number sequence).
