'50 Tula, perhaps the most variety in any one year:


'51 Tula:


'52 Tula:


'53 Tula:



'53 Izhevsk


'54 Tula, notice the 4's in 1954:


'54 Izhevsk:

Wow, that's an astounding amount of variability in the 49-55 covers, especially the early years!  :o

They all look the same to me.  Well, except for the  circle-triangle ones... which also look the same.

 :)

But seriously.  Nice work!

I would like to say that with questions asked and the replies answered that many people are now more informed about the SKS. For most people, a SKS is just a carbine, but for the rest of us it is more. It is a unique and ongoing learning experience. I thank those more knowable than me (and I am learning).

Nice DC.

Here's a 1:1 comparison of the two.  I believe you are correct, that stamp broke in that area and was eventually replaced with a new, slightly different one:
