This is from Tom A.

These are grip strap markings on a 1916 Army that went into early Weimar Navy service. The gun has not been overhauled or changed in any respect except the addition of the Ost Fleet markings, which are correctly haloed. The marking about 1/8 inch from the property number is the mystery. Any ideas?

NOTE: I cut and lightened the numbers, but didn't want to lighten the markings, so that is why it looks a bit funny. There is a before and after picture.

In my humble opinion it is letter I stamped crossover four times. I am "experienced in stamping" because I am marking daily controlled products in my (small) factory.

I agree with Jan. Maybe a botched attempt at an X or a +. It also appears slightly indented which I associate with having been stamped without using a mandrel. You should probably let me have this one cheap so you won't stay up nights worrying about it.
