The electro penciled numbers are factory assembly numbers to put the proper matching parts together
The serial number is applied later
Since the assembly numbers are not blued over as you would see in a refurbished yugo sks, I would say you have an as issued all matching yugo sks
Pictures of the stock especially of the forward screw in the stock below the hand guard and of the rubber butt pad and stock would help confirm this
Not a rework of the metal
Quite the contrary
Nice gun
Also photo of the wood by the trigger guard
In as issued stocks there will be the same assembly number in pencil
Photos please

I have seen a number of restocked yet otherwise as issued yugos. Some are passed off as totally unissued. They are not. Your stock at the rubber butt shows lines from a refinishing belt sander on the rubber. AS issued it would be smooth. Whether the prior owner did it or it was rebuilt with only the stock refinished does not matter as it is no longer an as issued stock. Still the rest of the gun looks as issued.
BTW the rear sight underneath, should also have the assembly number in the white if it is as issued. Nice gun which should be appreciated for its many as issued qualities. Enjoy.
BTW the screw to look at is the eighth of an inch screw below the hand guard. When as issued it is recessed about an eighth of an inch and after refurbishment, it is flush with the wood. FYI.
