    Default Butt plate stamp

    Has anybody ever removed a butt plate and found an ink stamp like this? This is from a Romanian capture bcd 43 with all matching parts except the bolt. I guess interordnance had a hard time trying to stamp their import mark on the receiver ring because it wasn't legible after several tries and next tried the barrel where it can be read

    They are fairly common but still a neat surprise. Here's a small collection of them:

    There are still several variations I'm missing.
    WTB: Rough milled, blued, unnumbered floor plate as found on late MO rifles. Unnumbered MO bands, both KM and standard type, MO KM stocks including unaccepted one, MO bands and stock 5897, upper band 0643

    Anything stamped on the outside of the butt plate?
