The main question I have is what does the electric pen marking on the side of the receiver mean? It appears to be "S ? 11-67". I assume this means it was reworked in November 1967. Is the first part recognizable? I think the first letter is an S, but I cannot make out the second letter. Also, what does "REP 18A" mean?

Photos can be seen at the links below.

Thanks for the help.
I think that is a SA 11-67. Bad job by the guy doing it. Also think that the 7-45 barrel was put on in 1967.

REP 18A is the heat lot for the receiver when it was made in Dec 41.
