Dug out a few early I-Cut Underwood's and here is a Marlin marked with holes as you indicated.



All the stock manufacturers used pretty much the same methods and similar tooling. WRA , Marlin, and Springfield Armory drilled the holes deeper than the rest. BTW the holes are not the same on WRA, Marlin, & SA stocks either. Sometimes you'll see two small dimples on other stocks. In these cases either the locater holes were drilled a little deeper or the blank was a little shorter so when the waste part at the rear was cut away a bit of the hole remained.

Marlin started out using MARLIN. Then they switched to M, which is often confused with W.

GHD is found on WRA and UEF stocks for the same reason it is also found on Ithaca made M1911A1s. They all were in the same ordnance district, Springfield Ordnance District, and Guy H. Drewry was the District Commander not an inspector.

Yes Underwood was bigger at 7/8" and Winchester was short of 13/16" These are left to right side of box measurements. Rick B

I have great news
after trying chalk, grease , and mutiple coats of linseed oil
I can finally see the ghost WRA over GHD
I did measure the box before I started with the oil and grease and it does measure very close to the 13/16"
13/16" is .8125 it measures .8100 so very close
I would like to think everyone for all the imput and help
here are a few pics I hope you all can see it also

Congrats! I thought that was what it was. I did have a few doubts though. It's a good honest stock.
