    Hi Jan, Congratulations on completing your G date "set", and thanks for the interesting presentation. I've always believed in being focussed when collecting, but one year's variations is tight indeed! Best regards, Norm

    Jan, thank you for another excellent presentation. A fascinating collection of G dates. Attached is a photo of a minor subvariation of the de/63 S/92 series, d suffix, with an E/211 barrel inspection stamp.

    Fellow collectors
    Thanks for your comments.
    Adrian
    As you said: DE/63 S/92 series, 4398d suffix, with an DE/211 barrel inspection stamp is yet another subvariation. I suspect that there are a few more such subvariations with a different left barrel acceptance stamp than the right receiver stamps.
    Another such subvariation below from Jake:
    My G date, ser# 6718 d, right receiver, E/63,S92,ETP. ETP right side of barrel, E/211 on left side of barrel. Mag is # 505L,E/63. No markings on inside of grips.

    Thanks for posting.

    Mr Still,

    I have what I believe to be a G date, all matching numbers 3456, DE63 / DE63. Mismatched toggle is a number 88 / S42. Any chance this would be a Luftwaffe or Kriegsmarine P.08, missing the correct toggle?

    Thanks for your time.

    Sturgess, in Bochardt & Luger Automatic Pistols, page 469 shows only the following three G date right receiver acceptance stamps:
    W154 S92
    E/211 S/92
    E/63 E/63.

    Note: This is only a partial list. He apparently decided not to list all six of the acceptance stamps documented in the first post above and repeated below:
    B90 S91
    B90 S92
    W154 S92
    DE/211 S92
    DE63 S92
    DE63 DE63

    Jan,
    I have a G Date with serial number 4438 and a letter that I can only perceive to be an a that just didn't enough pressure to show the whole thing at the factory. What's your take? BTW B/90 S/92 acceptance stamps.

    Looks an "a" to me. Coincident with the acceptation markings
