The Radium SA marking looks legit, it's just like mine. The one with the Devine Tex marking only has been seen on M1A rifle serial numbers as low as 000589 and as high as 000860 and authenticated by Mr. Ballance on serial number 000708 according to Lee Emerson in his excellent book M14 Rifle History and Development. The Devine marked one has been reparked though, as the original markings were in the white.

I agree with Deacon, the Radium marking is legit. When I tried to activate your link all I got was two partials of the word Devine. Don't know if it looks right or not but it is reparked. I have rifles with original Devine markings in 2, 3, and 4 digit serials. I have owned a couple with Radium markings.
