I have purchased my new (100+ year old) W.J. Jeffery - 404 Jeffery!:dancing: The 13 King Street address puts it as being made in 1914 or before since they moved that year. I have sent an email to try and get the Jeffery ledger for the serial number to see when the rifle was made. My understanding is that this may take awhile. George Caswell has some Jeffery ledgers and thinks the rifle was made around 1909. If any of you have access to records and can help the serial number is 18566. Thank you to all for your help, comic remarks, PM's and encouragement. (Some of you have helped a lot.) Now the long wait begins until my March hunt when I hope to use it. Hopefully I will be able to sleep between now and then. All the best.
