A. H. Fox Sterlingworth - 1910 or 1911 & other ???

I have custody of this family heirloom A. H. Fox Sterlingworth and I have some questions. If you click on the link you can see my complete write-up together with more photos.

#1 - the forearm is marked Model 1911 but the serial goes to 1910 according to the references I have. Could Fox have replaced the forearm when they replaced a burst barrel? Is this likely the reason?

#2 - why did Fox ommit the "I" in the "STERLNGWORTH FLUID STEEL" mark on the barrel? Was this the standard mark or is it the result of damaged tooling?
