This gallery has been requested a few times and I finally got enough photos to put it up. The gallery contains typical proof and acceptance marks for Lugers produced from 1898 to 1945. If anyone has additional examples, let me know and I'll include them. You can see the test gallery HERE!

Vern,
New member, great resource
I looked at the reference document trying to figure out what I've got. I didn't see the combination of markings on mine, if I overlooked them apologies, otherwise feel free to add with any additional info.
Toggle is DWM, Barrel Stamped 1918, serial#1957

You have a 1914 Artillery model, produced in 1918. In the Luger Proof/Acceptance Mark Identification Guide, your proof marks are on the far left of the 5th line. Each inspector used a unique letter under a crown so they could be identified. Quite a few combinations are possible so we only show a typical example.
