RUN-OUT GROOVE ENGRAVING*:
A: “UR 002 A1 MPO Cheb Trausleb.”
B: “UR 001 . B Cheb Trausleb. MPO”
C: “UR001 . C Cheb Trausleb. MPO”
D: “UR 001 . D Cheb Trausleb. MPO”
E: “UR 0021 A SST -11521-”
F: “UR 0021 B -11521- SST”

*The text ‘Cheb Trausleb.’ is written as a signature and could be something slightly different as the characters are not too clear. The ‘1’ on side ‘A’ is actually crossed out as the engraving should have only featured the ‘A’ alone.
