Just find the Eibar proof mark on it and let us know the date code (A-Z, A1-Z1 etc).

This is a modern reproduction, made by Avancargas Anchu, of Eibar, Spain (previously known as "Antonio Marcos Relea", which is where the "AMR" comes from). The "C-20" will be their catalog number.

Hard to see clearly in the first pic, but the date stamp seems to be S1 = 1974
