Smith Enterprises M21 mount

1914 3
Purchased a Smith Enterprises mount at a gun show today. It is marked M21 and is in excellent shape. I see machine marks so it is not the current one as they are EDM IIRC. It came with IOR Valdada quick release tactial rings. Gave $130 for it. Check the Smith website and not M21 marked mount is listed. Anyone know when this was built? Do they have the same finish as the current Smith mounts. It will be going on a SA 62XXX rifle. I will try to post pictures tomorrow.

Any opinions on the Valdada rings? They are 30mm and I am going to have to find some IOR inserts. My local police supply told me no problem with getting some in.
