Large Ring C96 Broomhandle - additional and unusual markings
« on: November 23, 2020, 07:52:20 PM »
 Hi folks,
 I am trying to track down these stamps, which are below the Mauser serial number on the backstrap. They look to be of the same vintage, but not a Mauser factory stamp (I don't think)....
 
 I first thought these numbers were stock serial numbers from John Rigby & Co, the English retailer, but now believe that that's not the case.
 Now I think they might be from a 'Jaeger Regiment' quartermaster, but no idea other than that.
 
 Any thoughts out there....  or has someone got a C96 with similar markings?
 thanks,
 Mike
