    Default Paint removal with acetone to reveal ink stamps

    Didn't want to hijack Stalina's post regarding paint removal with acetone, so I'm starting a new one. Hard to make out in the picture, but pretty clear to the naked eye, I was able to reveal the stylized "2" for the size, a smaller "39" underneath it, and the right portion of the LMZ manufacturer stamp to the left of the 39. That's probably as far as I'll go on this one so as not to damage the ink. Now on to the M36 with the same issue, I'll update later with the results of that one.

    Here's an Ssh36 with the stamp revealed by removing the outer layer of paint with acetone.

    That "293" next to the 1938 is just a batch number, right? I normally would say definitely yes, but in this case it has a dash between that and the date, which makes me think it might possibly be a factory, plus "3" is the Russian Z which stands for factory, so just want to make sure.

    Nevermind, found an example on a different forum (Wehrmacht Awards) with an identical stamp layout, obviously just a batch number. I guess no way to tell who the manufacturer was on this one.

    The manufacturer is only LMZ for this period
