    Here’s a picture of our 1963 Trooper. I’m pretty sure the Official Police would have come with the same stocks. If I’m mistaken someone will surely correct me.

    Yes, walnut service stocks and silver medallions since 1926-7.

    From 1926-7 (or earlier) through WWII the stocks had brass escutcheons in the screw holes and had three holes in the backside of each panel for securing the medallions. After the reintroduction of walnut stocks after the war, the brass escutcheons were no longer used and thstocks appeared as the ones shown in Mosby's picture. I believe by 1963 the medallions had a single mounting hole on the back of each panel.

    See the pre-war versus postwar pictures on the link Mosby provided.
