Iver Johnson Serial Number History

My serial number A 1139 can only come from 1900 unless Iver Johnson made more than 50,000 such models in 1897 - such that the Serial Number Chart Goforth references is inaccurate. This question relates to a federal criminal case. Unless the revolver is an antique (pre-1899), client faces a mandatory minimum 15 year prison sentence.
