WTK current value of Veny FN 49? Odd markings - Goose?

I'm photographing a Veny FN 49 for a friend who wishes to sell it. GB has a Lux and a Columbian in the 1700+ range (no bids) and it seems the Egyptian in typical condition go for around $800. The only Veny I've had was an unfired one back in the 90s I think I sold for $1200. But it was still in the arsenal packing grease with a gorgeous stock.

This one has NER 12 B 07030 hand engraved on both the receiver and the stock. If this is original from Venezuela, it would either increase value, or have no affect. If it is after surplusing, it would decrease value. I can't find any military unit that would "NER"

FP safety bolt is number matched to the cover and receiver, but the bolt carrier is not numbered.

No cartouches which I understand is correct for a sub 2000 serial number (1848)

Bore is clean with no pitting
