I concur with what Bill said. The issue with shell selection has to do with weakness of the stock head from oil penetration over the years, causing deterioration of the wood, leading to cracks around the back of the locks. Glass bedding is a good idea.
As to the stamp, it is an "N" superimposed over a "P", for Nitro Proof.
