I found a website that described the gun to a tee all the way down to the grips with the Eagle and it said they made 800 like them for the Mexican government in 1917

Your 1902 was made in 1917 with that serial. Additionally, once I saw the better pics I saw the grips. FRANZITE (flying eagle) was just a aftermarket brand of grips, which were imitation checked ivory, vintage but not original.
