Digging up a very old Post...not sure what the SN was of the gun in Post # 1...but it was noted as being a 1937-Date (and not a S-Code...)
But this SN-2788 (S-Code) was on the RIA auction in 4-2016 and it has Brit Proofs on the top of the rear toggle link and along the right side in several places. Even has the "Not English Make" on the right frame rail. It has a Mauser S/42 replacement side-plate, too. Noted has partially refinished/reblued.
It was their Lot # 1569, going hammer-down for $ 3,737.50.
