The eagle stamp - preliminary proof of the unfinished barrel, before 1939
crown over U - definite proof of finished gun
crown over W - proof for choked barrels
The top pictures seems to show a date stamp of 1 38, next to a crown over S for smoothbore barrels.
I don't see the Suhl mark , it would be a crest with a pick in a sole.
The best source I've found for proof mark info is Wirnsberger's book, but there is a lot of conflicting info out there.
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.
