It was made anywhere from 1920, when Stevens switched from the double-hump to the single-hump in the Model 520, to the 1932 discontinuance.

Savage/Stevens didn't keep SN records - but you "might" be able to obtain ($$) a more definitive DOM by contacting a fella named Callahan in Mass (google), who has some sort of factory ledgers, IIRC.
