108718108719Can anyone tell me why this martin which appears to be a style 3M but does not have the "Shield" or "parend" below the bridge at the bottom of the top? I am guessing the date is around 32 or 34 but I am not sure. All pictures with the 3 stripes lines down the fret board always seem to have the ornate celluloid "parend" mentioned above. Also, it all appears to be original.

According to the Walsh and King book, yours is a 1947-55 3M.
Enjoy the ride. Dave
