Trying to understand how many "commercial" versus "diamond-in-starburst" (police-accepted) pistols exist within this serial number range, and also why there are two different Prussian police acceptance marks (located front of left trigger guard). Pistols within this range are rare, so please go check your serial numbers and markings and post or PM me your s/n, whether or not there is an acceptance mark and if so what it is, and is possible a close-up picture of acceptance marks which look like the ones below

Here's my Behördenmodell 214666 diamond-in-starburst manufactured approximately 1935-ish by J.P. Sauer & Sohn in Suhl Germany. The diamond-in-starburst stamp indicates this pistol was inspected by acceptance officer as fit for purchase and service by nazi-era Prussian police.
