finish. 125221 was shipped to Kentucky, 125330 to Ohio and 125565 to
Texas. What's interesting about the set, is that, according to
the shipping records, there are no other factory engraved .25 in between
the three serial numbers. In other words, they are three
consecutive factory engraved Vest Pocket Models.
