All I can see is the little square with the X in the center.
Can you provide a link to say IMGUR?

A photo that shows the details a bit better would be helpful.

Rick could probably tell at a glance.

Yeah, the lighting and shading confuse the definition, which might have been the intent. Without reverting to my usual process of comparing it to my photo files, I'm going with fake, based on the shape of the G.

that stock has been sanded, see the rounded edges, stamps are far to perfect and sharp for a sanded stock, in my opinion it's fake.

Going to call fake. I think the "H" is too wide...

you guys are right - faked

stamped in Utah years ago by Terry Smith, stock is correct but not the cartouche. this guy also did some WRA WB fakes that were more difficult to detect
