Does anyone know what this is? Looks like a 3 in a circle. I can't find reference to any Un-Quality bevel stamps in any of the literature. 
Many thanks

The circled 3 marking is discussed in the thread below. Still up in the air on the meaning.

Thanks for that, Wayne,
The same Un-quality also has an import stamp on the barrel. I would almost bet that the circle 3 was stamped by the importer, based on what others on the forum have said about the stamp.

some of the tiger imports have the 3 in a circle, so I doubt it was the importer. 
It is probably one of the lend lease countries or MAP countries that later sold them to other countries such as Ethiopia
