16-Inch L-5s built between 1923 and 1935* can broadly be broken down into three categories, though in practice these often overlap. Bear in mind that serial numbers reflect the shipping date of the instrument rather than its date of production.

*Please note that a number of post-1934 L-5s were shipped with a 16-inch body (see ‘History‘) for shipping totals)
