Has anyone ever seen a Saginaw S'G' slide with these markings?  This is on an all original 1.79 S'G'.   It as type 3, or E279.

Correct, the S.G. is on the bottom side.  The bomb is upside down on the out side of the arm.

So its a Saginaw slide on an original appearing Grand Rapids carbine.
 
I know Inland transferred slides. Would have to check WB, However technically both Saginaw and Grand Rapids plants both being Steering Gear, I wonder if they would document a lateral support.
Later all S.G. carbines were finished in Grand Rapids with I believe a mix of parts

It has a Buffalo 6-43, I think barrel.  It has a few IP parts.

I have never seen any S.G.'s with a slide that has the bomb marking?

The bomb may be a random inspectors mark.
Unsure of barrel, but as to date i would expect more S'G' marked parts then IP.

It's not unusual to see SG parts with the flaming bomb on them

It is mostly S'G'.  IP parts are swivel, sear, mag catch and butt plate.
