Posted - 08/15/2007 : 9:45:18 PM In the late 1970s someone came out with reproduction dust covers, don't remember if for both the 38 and 99 or just one, but they were easy to spot because the bottoms of the sides and back did not meet, there was a gap. Recently I've seen at least three 99s with matching DCs, only they were the 1970s repros that had been numbered to the rifle.

If you see two small numbers stamped in the wood examine the rifle extremely closely. The person (known) who marked his rifles this way also on occasion made other "changes" to increase the value.
