Date for Remington 521 T Junior special

How do you date a Remington Model 521 t Junior special if it doesn't even have a serial number cuz it was made before 1954! I have one given to me by my grandfather and there is no serial number anywhere!

I also have a 521 T that my Father bought new in 1949 or 1950.

I learned to shoot on it, and took many squirrels with it.

Its the one gun of my Dad's that I would never, ever get rid of. It brings back far too many fond memories of him.

Hell of a gun!

My father bought me this 521T in the mid-1970s. It started me on the path of competitive shooting, and I still have it (and all the NRA Jr. Smallbore trophies) to this very day. Mrs. G-98 is a deadeye with the rifle, and I'm more than happy to keep it in the family for her to enjoy.
