Figured out the circle with the 11 means polish on the first one.

Still puzzled on the second one. Says D27 on the inside of the front trunnion

Circle 11 is the proof mark of the Luznik Radom armory.
My Tantal is a 1992 Circle 11 with a ZH serial number as well.
Not sure what the CS mark is.

My unbuilt Tantal is a 1990 Circle 11 and came with poly black furniture. From what I hear, the Poles issued the Tantal to their military in 1991.

Maybe more valuable or rare?

OP, no clue about your unknown trunnion.
