The number on the barrel shank is the original serial # of the rifle. During refurb the other #'s were ep'd to match.
The long # is the serial number assigned to it by the import company. :D

Most all were refurbished after WWII. then the various Eastern Block countries may have also refurbed them.
Basicaly they put them all in working order in new varnished stocks, reblued barrels, and stuff and put them in storage for when they might be needed.

Can anyone else explain this better. I'm failing miserably. :D
