Default Model 66-1 markings, what do they say?

Finally, yesterday I recieved my model 66-1. I have waited for this gun for a long time. The gun is in excellent condition. original grips, box, papers etc. I really cant see that this gun has been fired at all.
But there is some markings on it that I have never seen before. Anyone here that could help me with further information? I live in Norway and have imported this gun from Denmark-thats all i know. Due to the serial number it is made in 1980.
