    Welcome to the forum.

    Difficult to determine much from these photos. I'm no photographer but pictures taken outside in the shade with a dark background might help.

    Interesting. Thank you for posting the much clearer photos.

    Rotated 90 degrees and 300% zoom shows some irregularities in the characters, ie, the O in Colt. Possibly just the photo enlarged that much or some polishing away of some detail.

    It might also possibly be a pantographed marking. Inspect the ends of the lines creating the letters like L, T, I, etc. Do they appear squared off or rounded off at the ends of the lines?
