Yes a nice job indeed. My 1930 unaltered PP looks like it possibly has the number 6 in the tang well. My 1935 PPK RZM also has a tang marking.

I think this should be expanded to include PPK's as well. Here mine from another thread here.

My 1939 Zella Mehlis PPK has a very small mark in the tang well; it is too small to get a good photo with my cell phone camera; it looks like a 4-sided geometric shape. You have to be looking for it to notice it.

My 1931 PPK has a marking like a three leaf clover.
