Colt New Service. Mutt or Whut?

Colt New Service .455 Eley. Serial number on frame and crane indicates DOM of 1914. Cylinder appears to have been reamed to 45 Colt with the chambers slightly countersunk. 45 Colt drops in easily and cycles fine. Extraction is iffy with some loaded rounds slipping free of the star. The only number on the cylinder is the number 2 stamped on the rear face. There is an "E" stamped on the grip frame underneath the (replacement?) grips. Some of the other stamps I recognize and others I do not. Anyone have any ideas about where its been? Would the stamps be different on a revolver sent to Canada versus one sent to England?
