Thanks in advance, D
I have "America's Right Arm" which is a book about the M&P and Model 10s
From what I can tell the Model 10 wasn't made until 1957. Before that they were Military & Police. You may not be looking at the right serial number. The correct serial number is usually stamped on the butt of the gun, and most likely will have an Alpha char or alpha and number prefix, i.e. "A" through "Z".
If you can post or PM more info I can look it up in the book.
