What is the serial number on each, and what is the barrel date on each?  Based on the “G.H.D.” cartouches, they should both be late 1942 or 1943 production guns, with a serial number in the 941200+ range.

Bert how can you see the cartouches?  With such a small file I can’t blow them up enough to see anything?

I have X-ray vision… just kidding, I was able to blow them up clearly enough to see the “G.H.D.” cartouches on the butt stock.
