Congratulations on a fine purchase. That strap checkering with scroll is factory for sure. I read someplace years ago, don't know if it is true, that when the in-house engravers did not have enough engraving work that management sent them to the checkering bench to assist with hand checkering straps and some got tired of just doing checkering so they added a little flair to the job. I have seen this done mostly at the top of the back strap but also at the bottom on a couple of guns.
