    Are you getting the serial number from the bottom of the grip frame? Also, what is stamped in the crane area when the cylinder is opened?

    Ok. Found it.

    The book says that sometimes the prefixes were used out of order "ahead of the time they normally would have rolled around, sometimes for special production items."

    Then on the 640 page, "Early production guns reported with serial numbers prefixed CEN.". Produced 1989-1996.

    Have you got any ideas as to the star on the gun or are these on all of them?

    Don't know on the star, but the serial number on my 640ND is BRP459* rather than CEN prefix.
