RE: Historic lumber grade

This would refer to Oregon Pine (old name for Douglas Fir) and would likely be #1 grade. Not sure what the Com. Refers to.

We have a project which was probably built over 40 (?) yrs ago.  Existing drawings indicate the following notation used for an 8x16 wood member:

 

8x16 Sel #1.O.P. Com

 

Does anyone know what this means or its structural properties?  I am not sure if it is actually #1 or #L??
