And Winchester 73 you have a awesome collection of firearms!!
Thank you. It takes a lot of time and reading, an understanding wife and a little money and anyone can have the same or better. I enjoy being into a lot of different kinds of guns because I lose focus when I do the same thing over and over again. I also enjoy talking to other collectors and this website helps me to do that. I have learned a lot here and hopefully I have helped some others as well.

Was it stamped "made in Germany" in English for export reasons?
Yes that is how I understand it. For a German commercial gun, there wouldn't be a reason to stamp "MADE IN GERMANY" in English. Often times German commercial guns just have the nitro proofs and no other markings.
