It's the elusive PM marking that no one knows what it means. Your stamping is just incomplete.

Your barrel's serial number has given my argument support that as rifle production came close to the end of the year, that barrel production was ahead of the assembly process. As a result, barrels produced at the end of the year in anticipation of being assembled, would be stamped with the previous years date than when the barrel would be assembled into a whole gun. So the early guns of 1933 would be stamped with a 1932 date and would need to be corrected when finally assembled.
