Thread is six years old.  Member doesn't even come on here anymore.  Starting your own thread is the better option, Rick.

Fellow Weathbyterians,
   I have written a few posts about Vanguard serial numbers.  I can hear the yawns already.  Actually I would like some feedback from members who have recently purchased one of the last S1 Vanguards. 
   According to our best information, the last S1 models had receivers made by machining from extruded bar stock.  Indeed the S2 has a new serial range which helps us remember that.  The numbers which I have seen on the S2 model have a VB prefix with a six digit serial.  To help me remember, I think of the VB serial as meaning Vanguard Bar Stock. 
   What I would like to know is if anybody out there has a late S1 with a serial number that doesn't begin with VS.  The highest serial I have seen for the S1 is VS 393XXX.  I have X'ed out the last three numbers, of course.  Does anybody have a higher one, or an S1 that begins with the VB prefix?
   Your feedback will be appreciated.
your pal,
