Good evening Al,
Quite often a stock sub-inspector will stamp his (or her?) initial(s) in just about that same location during the stock inspection step. In the case of a field replacement stock, this initial is the ONLY stamp appearing at this location. In the case of my very early Model 1873 Carbine belonging to the Pennsylvania State Police, the stock was apparently a replacement (Al believes that it simply never was stamped with the "Circled-P" nor the "ESA" cartouche and has only (what appears to be) a "JS" or "JH" stamped behind the aft end of the trigger plate.
