S&W serial number question

If anyone out there has a copy of the Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson, I have a request.

I have a Smith & Wesson Model 37 Airweight which I would like to find out the manufacture date. Can anyone help? The internet has been spectacularly unhelpful.

Serial number is AAR9xxx.

I also have another S&W (actually, in my dad's possession) that I would like to see if the book has some info on, but it's more complicated-- by the apparent presence of multiple serial numbers-- and I will discuss that in the comments if anyone has the book and is able to help.

I can't see spending the money on a book just to look up two dates. But if someone already has it...
