Interesting FAL boltcarrier

I'm really starting to believe the oval proof is not unique to Austrian.

This came with a non-matching FN bolt and lower, with so much rust that I believe it to be from a SARCO Cuban kit (Belgian Long flash on cut barrel).

If you look carefully around the number, you'll see diagonal sanding marks which suggests to me that this carrier was re-stamped at some point. But the transition to the forward radius is so good, that I can't be sure. Point is, they are not from a cutting tool, but from hand-sanding.
