Help identifying this little beastie appreciated.

Serial # 163802

Transverse shuttle stamped: D.R.G.M. 74486

One of the shuttle covers is stamped "Trade Mark" with 7 stars in a circle design, 6 stars around a central star.

The machine looks like a Hengstenberg & everything about it screams DE origin, but the shuttle cover looks like a Raymond part - it also doesn't quite align with the body of the machine.

Photos attached - please let me know what else if anything is worthwhile photographing for help with identification.

The machine came with several hand written notes which I believe hold inaccurate info. They list it as a Secor from USA. The machine is in AU & we had a sizeable migration from all parts EU, including DE.

The shuttle movement is very smooth.

I am very new to this world of antique machines, though I have been sewing forever. Any tips appreciated.
