M1871/88 Dutch Beaumont-Vitali Close-ups:
 


    This example built at Maastricht.  Numbers are production lot numbers,
    not serial numbers.  Note the gas escape holes in the event of a cartridge
    base or rim failure.
 


    Sight, proof marks, date of manufacture and serial number
 


    Additional Dutch proofs on the right side of the barrel.
    I do not know their meaning.  Anyone out there who can help?
