Default "R" inside a circle and "V" inside a triangle stamped on grip frame?

Model 10-8 (last of the pinned); right side of the grip frame there is a stamped "R" inside a circle and a "V" inside a triangle.

Ran a search but couldn't find anything definitive.

Does anyone know what they mean?

The symbols you cited above are stamped there by the individuals who fitted, assembled, and/or inspected your revolver. Other than that, they have no specific meaning.
