Here are the barrel flats of my 20 ga 147E gun. Trying to figure out what all the proof marks are. Any help?

Thanks, sask. I sort of figured out most of the marks. The bird's feet or the V confused me.

And even though they’re not proof marks, it’s choked Improved Cylinder and Modified

FYI.....VZ and 1/2 are the choke designations which as mentioned are IC and Mod based on Merkel pattern density specifications. I have a 12 ga. with the same choke designations and based on traditional constriction values, mine measures a little more open than normal with with VZ being between Skt and IC at .007" and 1/2 being more like LM at .016"
