    davis,

    As far as I know, you cannot.
    You can, though, through various sources (as above), determine the shipping date.
    The year is pretty easty via the Standard Catalog of S&W. Or posting, and someone with that book will look it up for you. Submitting a request to the factory for a letter will yield the exact shipping date and will tell you to whom/where it was shipped.
