Rob, The serial number that appears on your gun is 81xxx S7. The previous serial number 81xxx was in a different series of numbers and is separate and distinct from the one ending in S7.

Quoting from the book "Browing Dates of Manufacture"

"On January 1, 1963 the 12 gauge started with serial number 6556S3, to designate the year of production. The "3" indicates the date (1963) and the serial number at the beginning of 1963 is 6556."
