I have observed completely original guns that were not stamped behind the cap.

I have in one particular case found where the stamp was under the dhbp right on the walnut plug where the rod was installed.

Where is the stamp on a straight grip gun?

Good question Bill. I have never seen one but maybe someone who has the hickory reinforcing rod in his straight grip with the patent stamp can show us a picture of it or at least describe where it is located.

Brian says he has seen one on the end of the rod under the DHBP but that won’t work on a stock with a skeleton steel butt plate.

I do not recall of that gun with the stamp under the plate was PG or SG, it was a while ago.

Has anyone ever installed a rod to strengthen a broken wrist while repairing it?

Absolutely. That, or something similar to it is commonplace. But not all the way to the butt. Recently I have used Carbon Fiber instead of wood as it is very lightweight and stronger than steel.
