Savage 720 question

Hi
I just got a savage 720, But I never seen one like it. It is
lightly engraved, on one side it has a marsh scene with ducks,
on the other side it has a pointer and quail. The top of the reciever
is scroll engraved on the four corners and it has savage engaved
between them on the side opisite of the bolt. It is also strange
in that it does not have a serial number. I was just wondering
if anyone had seen one like it or had any information. Thanks
for any help.

No Serial #

No serial number was common before the Gun Control Act of 1968.

I have a Remington 550 that has a manufacturing date code (CE10) that I have used whenever anyone asks me about a #, but there must be a few hundred of those made in April 1958.
