Default Brazilian mauser, scrubbed crest

I got this Brazilian Mauser a few months ago...excellent condition, but with a scrubbed crest (?)


I'll get some additional pics up as soon as I can

When it arrived I discovered that it had been completely refinished and that the receiver crest and bolt had been scrubbed. It is in great shape, and all of the parts that still have numbers on them match the receiver and the bore is spectacularly good...but I can't figure out why the crest and bolt flat was scrubbed.

I've heard of Argentine Mausers being scrubbed, but not Brazilian. Anyone have any ideas?

Some of the 1908's were sent to Uruguay and San Salvador. The ones sent there either had very light proof marks or they were scrubbed.

Some rifles were even made without any receiver crests. The ones with no crest like yours were often sent to Salvador. I may be wrong, but that is what I read a while back.
