Hey Ted, let's ask FAB:

Salut FAB, Pourrions-nous vous demander comment vous en êtes arrivé à cette conclusion? - "Je daterais sa fabrication entre 1918 et 1923." Nous nous intéressons particulièrement à l'effet de la guerre sur les épreuves. Existe-t-il un moyen de différencier les marques d'épreuve d'avant-guerre et d'après-guerre ?

(Hi Fab, could we ask how you came to this conclusion? - "I dated its fabrication to between 1918 and 1923." We are particularly interested in the effect that the war had on proof-marks. Is there a way to differentiate between pre-war and post-war proof marks?)

FAB and I discussed the conundrum about the cm/mm changeover date. We are trying to do this by analysis when surely there is a record of this somewhere in Saint-Etienne. He wrote to the proof-house and never received a reply. I may have to ask in-laws to go up there and do some research.

Gene,
Good start. I get prior to 1924, as the marks changed, along with the laws.

I’ve been in the proof house in St. Etienne. It is a busy little hive. The proof master answered a few of my questions, translation provided by Herve’ Bruchet, and explained the place would have been off limits to me, if they had been proofing military guns that day (they weren’t). Then he went back to work.

Racks and racks of barrels for Verney Carron semi autos were lined up.

Best,
Ted

Ted, I think the answer will lie someplace else other than the proof house. Let's see who we can tap amongst the historical Stephanois researchers. Let me work on it. It's worth it.
