Use the first selection, 1950 and earlier Savage Date of Manuf.

Can you find the Lever Boss code?? should be a number and a letter inside a small oval in front of the lever.

Yeah, that time frame would be my guess. 755xxx started in 1955 according to the book.

Re: Savage 99 manufacture date

They started stamping the lever boss codes in 1949 but many are very hard to read. They are very small and prone to wearing off over time.

Here is a complete list of the Lever Boss Codes and their corresponding year of manufacture:
A= 1949
B= 1950
C= 1951
D= 1952
E= 1953
F= 1954
G= 1955
H= 1956
I= 1957
J= 1958
K= 1959
L= 1960
M= 1961
N= 1962
O= SKIPPED
P=1963
Q= SKIPPED
R= 1964
S= 1965
T= 1966
U= 1967
V= 1968
W= 1969
X= 1970

Use the boss code. Serial numbers don't always give an accurate date.
