What you have there are the remains of the original Serbian acceptance stamp! Nice. Started life as an M24. If you check the tang, it may still bare Belgian or Serbian stamps.

If I may suggest also detail stripping the bolt, I found some odd Crap mixed in with the cosmo <i>under</i> the firing pin spring on mine. between the cosmo and other stuff it ended up creating a bit of drag on the spring. Probably preaching to the choir though

It'll be a day or two before I get to the rifle. But then it will be completely disassembled, cleaned, lubed and reassembled.

I've also got to order some ammunition for it. Is 1950's Yugo ammo decent? How about 1970's Yugo?

I can buy small quantities (150rds.) of the 50's stuff, but can only get the 70's in larger quantities.

I got some 70s Yugo with a Turk 93/30 that was pretty hot and good for accuracy but I'm sure different lots and different guns are unique.

1st off, get the 1970's stuff!
As far as your rifle, you scored big time. If the stock were stamped 1.TRZ or TRZ.5 you would have quite the find.
Those old stamps all add to the History and value. Your rifle can be traced back to the Mid 1920's. An original M24. When you break the rifle down to clean it, Check the firing pin and the bottom of the receiver and tang for stamps. If you had walked into a shop, knowing what to look for I don't think you could have done better.
