As seen below, there are four possible marks on any Star firearm.
Three are proofmarks, and there is a fourth that is a Spanish military acceptance proof.
All the examples on this page are highlighted in crayon; yours will not be this visible. Pull those off (for many guns, like the Firestar, be careful not to move the safety as a plunger can become dislodged and fly away, lost forever when the grips are off) and look if you have no other luck.
At least one reader has a model PD with, apparently, the month and year of manufacture directly stamped on the frame.
Proof marks are often very shallow, and in obscure places, like far up the trigger guard.
You might not notice them unless looking, under bright light, at low angles. They may be under the stocks, and on small guns, very often are completely or partly under the grip panels.
Though 100% of armor in those early days was tested, this rapidly changed to batch testing, which is what we have now with most firearms.
A representative sample of each lot of weapons is tested with a proofing cartridge, which has vastly higher pressure than the normal specifications.
It might appear on the box label, however, so everyone look around and tell me if that seems true.Although many other countries have military acceptance marks as well, I do not know their design; if anyone does know for sure, please send me a good quality photo or other reference information.The three proof marks indicate receipt at the proof house, passing of proof, and the date of proofing.Note that proofmarks are not highlighted; this has been emphasized with white crayon before imaging.It's still a bit of a mess, but if you are not seeing it, there's the proof house admission seal, the proof house pass seal, large letters apparently reading "T•1" below this.
