Pre-War PP marking?

Hey everyone,
Just picked up my first Walther PP. When it finally arrived I was looking it over and noticed this marking on the grip strap. Just not sure on it. Maybe electro pencil? Doesn’t look like a service number. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks
Jeff

This marking is nothing official. Maybe the previous owner, who "liberated" this gun, marked it as his property.
Best wishes,
Dieter H. Marschall.

It’s an oddly specific sequence of letters and numbers that doesn’t correspond to any pattern I recognize, like SSN or DL. Maybe an evidence number from some police dept.? In Florida? Somebody would have to recognize the specific format.

Maybe its the owners Florida drivers license number for ID if stolen.
