    Trademark on a Gecado Mauser rifle

    Anyone recognize this trademark? Left side of receiver marked with crown B/U/G proofs and "Gecado Suhl"
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Some possible matches to the initials are Albert Holland, Adolf Heym, and Alfred Hertlein. This was a rebuild of a military rifle into a Wehrmannsgewehr, evidently done prior to 1927. The only other clue is the use of a Haenel rear sight made for the Wehrmannsgewehre.
