Though Stevens used S/Ns well before 1968, there was a time when they made 311s without them.
Indeed, I have several Stevens without numbers. My 311A made in 57 isn't numbered. I do not believe that is the original forearm tho.

Stevens introduced this gun as the Model 5000 in the early 1920's, changed the designation to 5100 about 1931, and changed it again about 1941 to the Model 311.
The 5100 was in production until 1948, the 311 didn't come about until 49.
