West German turn in P38 Eagle Stamps

Sponsored Links
Does anyone know the significance of the German Eagle stamps on a P38? I have three under the right barrel support, one is struck out?

There is also one in the same area on the left side

There is a 12/59 stamped so I assume thats the manufacture date.

Any input would be appreciated

I've been told that the first was the stamp of the Factory Inspector and the right was the stamp of Military Acceptance. NO verification of this, but thought I'd pass it on. 358 , 359 or similar is supposedly the actual Inspector number. Maybe someone else can verify or debunk?
