Appears rear of receiver was ground down. Also looks to be reminets of previous stampings to left of serial.

Admittedly, I am not a great student of Inland, so maybe typical characteristics early Inland?

Rear of the receiver didn’t bother me. The sight being crushed did. Both sides of the receiver look like they were clamped in a vise. The right side of the sight looks crushed in. And looking at the posted pic the bottom right of the dovetail looks to show a staking peen next to the flat spring. Left over from the removal of an adjustable sight upgrade.
