The only variations I am aware of are the standard "I.B.M. CORP" on the rear of the receiver and the same with "AO" (for Auto-Ordinance) stamped below the serial number on the bevel of the receiver. Any other marks on the receiver are probably just inspector's marks or production tracking marks whose meaning is lost to time.
