Good morning to all.
I'm a new member looking to understand the markings on the grip of a P08 made in 1918 by DWM. I'm told it was originally an artillery model shortened in 1920 and assigned to the Weimar Republic police.
As far as I can see, there are two series of numbers: the first (lower down on the grip) was crossed out by big Xs, and a second series further up the grip partially overlaying the first one.
The lower series is S.B.220.127.116.11 (or 8?)
The upper series is S.D. IV.3.33; here, the 33 is smaller.

Any help in making sense of these markings would be greatly appreciated.
