    Figure 4. Right side of receiver, 1937 S/42, sn 9729z , showing the SE63 SE83 acceptance stamps and Mid-test proof. This is the blued variation with double SE acceptance stamps. This is the lowest serial number SE83 reported. The blued SE SE variation is in the approximate serial range of 9729z to 4068b.
    Figure 5. 1937 S/42, sn 9729z Luger. The inner side plate number (97) is the same as the first two digits of the Lugers serial number
    Figure 6. Inside grips 1937 S/42, sn 9729z Luger. These are stamped with the last two digits of the Lugers serial number.

    Jan,

    Thanks for this great tutorial about the transition of finishing methods on 1937 Mauser Lugers.
    Another precious lesson.

    Jan,

    Many thanks for the excellent presentation of the Mauser P.08 in 1937, a year of many changes and variations.

    Thanks for this great stuff Jan.
    I have a personal interest as the only S/42 P.08s that I own are dated 1937 and 1938.



    SE/63 magazine markings on the 1937.



    DE/63 markings on the 1937.


    It looks like SE/83 on the 1938 magazines.....when did that change?



    SE/63 inspection markings on the 1938 but SE/83 on the magazines???

    Beautiful presentation and photographs of 1937 S/42 and 1938 S/42 Lugers; both with two matching magazines. The magazine bases of both have stick wing acceptance. Interesting, the 1938 magazines have SE 83 acceptance and its receiver has SE63 acceptance.
    Thanks for posting a pair of interestion Lugers in beautiful shape.

    Thanks Jan.

    I believe the letter is 'i'.

    SE 63 acceptance on the 1937 S/42 magazines and SE 83 on the 1938 magazines.



    The matching magazines for the 1937 and 1938 S/42s together.

    Great information!!!! I spent most of the day trying to find out what the last eagle on the right side of the receiver was called. This answered my question and a couple of others I had. Great presentation, easy to follow for a novice Luger collector and pictures made it even better!
