Default Question on barrel marking

Really enjoying my 1911, spending some range time and learning more about it. Unfortunately, I can't find anything on the barrel marking. It looks like I have a matching Colt frame and slide, both from the same time period but the only marking on the barrel is a "5" on the top breech end. Under magnification, there is no other markings. I am using Poyer's book but can find nothing mentioned there. Does anyone one have a suggestion on how I might check it further? By the way, the S/N range is in the 169000 range, if that helps.
