    Czech Mauser? VZ23 or VZ24?

    I recently had this rifle come into my possession. I am not exactly sure if it is a Czechicon vz23 or vz24. It seems that every serial number on this rifle matches, bolt, stock, receiver. Anyone have any information they can share with me on it. What all the stamp marks mean, how much it is worth, etc?

    Need more pics to be sure but the serial number and the spacing between the barrel bands puts it being a vz24, but it has the crest normally found on a vz23.
    Those marks on the reciever above the s/n are from the Czechicon MoD acceptance stamp being stippled over and the s/n stamped on the stock below the reciever ring suggest this may be 1 of 40,000 vz24's that were sold to the Sovieticon Union in 1938 and wound up in Spain with the Republican Forces during the Spanish CW and later refurbed by the Spanish army.
