The 1982 Mercian Colorado is stamped 45882, with an 8 stamped under that. According to Jane at Mercian, it's the 458th frame of 1982, by builder no. 8, George Bryan. The numbers are between the under-BB cable tunnels

My 1981 Mercian Professional frameset BB shell is stamped 107981 and 2. An inquiry to Mercian informed me it was the 1079th frame made of 1981 by builder #2. My old computer crashed so I do not have the original email, but remember that their #2 builder retired shortly after this frame was made and he was one of their most experienced.
