So is Barling's arched over Make pre and trans and post trans? Just inquiring about 4 digit pipes that begin with "5". They have Barling Design "design in script" on the opposite side of the cross on the stem.

I know other digits with the arch are definitely pre-trans. But not sure about the dating of the 5xxx model number

1962. Short version of the story, "The so-called “Transition” era pipes can’t really be clearly defined. The only exception are the pipes made for a short period in 1962, a “Barling’s Make” pipe whose four digit model number begins with a 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6."
