@stone, first welcome to CCF. Second that is a great close-up pic, but can you please add overall pics of both sides to help us figure out whether this is a counterstamp, damage, or something else. Thx.

All you need to do is reply to your original thread with these pics, here http://goccf.com/t/428876 Perhaps the mods can merge this in. Note that you first said it was 1944. Strong clash with the stem in front of the neck too.
