I found one reference that dead ended with the starting text reading:

"Aug 08, 2005 "Silesia" was a large German firearms distributor and marked the guns they sold with their name. I have not been able to find them on a web search, so they may be out of business, but they were active in the post-war period when Europe was awash ...."

If anyone has any other leads let me know. Thanks. Bill.

Are there German, Belgian or other proof marks?

Pixel size is limited to what I can post, but yes there are a number of proofing marks. Very similar to some of the C&R firearms I have from Europe. Here is the best close up I can do with the size of the jpg. Or I can private message you the full size picture. In the next post I'll include additional pictures. Thanks, Bill.
