Good evening everyone. I have recently acquired an old Golding “Official #3.”

I understand how serial dating works with Kelsey’s but not Golding. Can anyone help? The stamped number is 685.

Thank you for your time.

The batch of Official 3’s with serial numbers from 663 through 687 were “Finished Apr. 30, 1886” according to the Golding serial number log.
