It's the Caithness seconds mark. CIIG sometimes seen scratched as C2G

It is more curvy than my Caithness Seconds/reduced mark, they must have changed it at some point? (learning)

I think there are variants. It's only a stencil after all

I was thinking we might be able to date it by the variations of the mark.
