Subject: RE: Telescope, US Signal Service
The number is actually etched in the first barrel, the one with the eyepiece on it, rather than at the other end where the sunshade is. Don't know if that makes any difference, though - it is definitely something someone etched in rather than being done at the manufacturer.
I do know what you mean about red rot from my other Civil War leather items, and no, this doesn't show that at all, thankfully. And I totally agree with you about the straps standing away from the sides - they are basically "frozen" in that position, as if the carrying strap were still present!
Is this at all similar to the 'scope you have?
