"dot" is the three letter code for Waffenwerke Brünn AG, Werk Brünn Czecholslovakia, this was the only manufacturer to continue production of the MG34 up to the end of the war, and the star symbols indicates that it was subsequently used by the Israelis.
4875 b is the serial number and originally all numbers on the gun would match. The different numbers on the top cover indicates that this part is a replacement
I hope this helps.

Thanks.

Any idea on the five pointed star in the second pic?
