What was the convention on sear marking for type II Winchesters? The W on the side versus markings on top, is what I wonder about?

Just a few random thoughts with nothing to back it.
The hole being in the area where they previously stamped them made them find a new location?

From a stamping perspective the sear would have been put in a jig that had support where stamped. It would be easier to stamp the side by laying on a flat surface with the wider front overhanging the surface than trying to support the back end without a jig.

There's also a punch mark on that flat side to the far right of the W

presumably a Rockwell hardness test. I have seen them on sides or sears, I do not recall them anywhere else on the sear. Most probably because of the laying on the side scenario
