    It should be on the tang under the opening lever. Many are lightly stamped so they didn't bend the lever.

    I've found the above site useful and according to that site:

    The year of manufacture for serial number 4760 is 1935

    http://oldguns.net/sn_php/winmods.htm

    On the site scroll down.. click on Model 21 under shotguns

    1935 would seem about right. Is your gun a ST or DT? Many of the early ones were DT.
