If you check an L66A1 .22 PP with the "P" stamped slide you'll see discoloration where the slide area was heat treated. I doubt this was needed due to overly hot .22 ammo or the slide hitting the trigger guard too hard. My guess is the slides are affected by tossing the safety drum back and forth as the round count increases. Just a theory.
.
Here are photos of my 1940 & 1983 Danish Police PP's. No cracks are visible on either slide though both showed normal wear.

Milspec: The 'P' marking indicates, that they've installed a reinforced firing pin. Certainly to hit the reinforced cartridge on the overly hot.22 ammo...

The hottest European ammo (7,65mm) available on the civil market was made by GECO/RWS (now part of Ruag). Standard ammo for most of the European PP series user over decades, because they were cheap and available everywhere.




GECO old (RWS, shown left side): E0(Joule) = 248
S&B: E0(J) = 240
GECO new (RUAG, shown in the middle): E0(J) = 214
Fiocchi (shown right side): E0(J) = 206
Standard (f.e. Winchester Super-X FMJ, Prvi Partizan, Magtech): E0(J) = 175

To compare => 9mm kurz/.380: E0(J) = up to 310

Here's an update with photos of my 1973 Danish Police PP with one of the Walther, Ulm, replacement slides made without an indicator pin. The slide was seperately proofed with an Eagle/N proof mark, "II" (1988) date code, and Ulm proof house antler on the right slide. The full frame serial number is engraved inside the slide.

Your's is much like mine. Though mine is a '71 model, it shares the same characteristics as yours.

I like the way the Danes etched the serial numbers into the mag finger extension.

I've often thought about replacing the hammer strut plug to get rid of the lanyard loop to make it a bit easier for CC, but I hate screwing with original pieces.
