Folks - I have what I've discovered here is a Herbert Schmidt .22LR six-shot revolver - to me, a trapline gun. Again, thanks to a gentleman here, I've learned the meaning of three proof marks on the frame -

Eagle above N - smokeless proof mark
Shield - Munich Proof House
Shield w/ 68 - Year of manufacture/proof

On the cylinder, there are these markings - and bear with me, as my eyes aren't what they used to be -

Star in a circle above a shield with an X (?) = translation?
Star in a circle above the capital letters PSF = translation?

Serial number is 331994. Does this correspond to a manufacture date of 1968? Or could there be some difference between the actual date of manufacture and the date of proofing as stamped?

Thank you, gentlemen - M.D. Johnson

Star in a circle above a shield.... the "X" is a poor figure of a dragon, lion, or who-knows-what. It's an Italian proof mark.... "provisional proof for all guns" from Brescia proof house.

Star in a circle above the capital letters PSF.... "definitive proof for guns with smokeless powder"..... again, Italian, from Gardone & Brescia
