1951, 1953, 1953, 1954, 1954, 1956

That is when they were produced as a movement, which could be cased later.

Here is an odd one (to me at least?). I just repaired a 497/1, with a serial that would put it before my 1953 serial above. I thought the 497/1 was a later revision, but apparently not! Weird.
