Default Savage 99 Date of Mfr

Trying to date my Savage .300 model 99. Closest I can get is between 1947-1949.
The serial number is 508189 and the lever
boss has an asterisk on it. Also it has a Leupold Scope serial number 177444. I’m curious as to it’s age as well. Any ideas?
Thanks

Savage uses a letter code, always on receiver somewhere I find then UNDER where rear stock attaches. Sometimes its in a circle other times not...

Starts with A = 1949, B = 1950 and so on. If assumed it was made pre that date, maybe the link above will help.
