I've got a PPK that is marked like yours, "Made in West Germany." If you look at the barrel at the ejection port, you will likely see the year it was made. Mine was 68, just beating the GCA.

Correct: The PP chambered in 9mm kurz was proofed in 1966 (66) by Ulm proof house (antler). Seems to be an export version because of the 'Made in West Germany'.

Normally between 1949-1989 the marking was 'Made in West Germany'. But I know about 'Made in Germany', 'Made in W-Germany' or 'Made in West Germany'.
