Well, anything is possible (except skiing thru a revolving door) but that circle with the R is the Eibar Spain proofmark for a revolver.

For those that do not have these, you may want to print them for future use-

I also found that the shield with the X and knight on it is Eiber as well. And it is stamped series A.1 which so far I have found to be a 1955 model but that could be wrong.

So as of now I will go with it being a 1955 spanish copy sold out of Germany by the Geco guys?

If anyone else has anything to add please do. I love learning about some of this old stuff.

Not uncommon for a supplier to outsource production.

I am just glad I am getting somewhere with this thing. I have had it for a few years and had no idea and everyone just said it was a S&W but misspellings and no stamp are a dead giveaway.
