I have a a 1938 Walther PP. I have been told 100x that the lettering was not colored on the Walthers but.... any possibility that this one was factory? The paint does not remove with any chemicals and it does not look like any I have seen before. Thanks !

This should be your clue right there. The chances of some feature being factory increase significantly the more specimen are found, independent of each other.

The chances that you have the one example of a hitherto undocumented factory experiment with non-removable lettering paint is remote indeed.

Maybe I should have posted my question better, there are examples that have left the factory with gold lettering. Its not common but those examples are documented, so maybe the issue is no province means no go ? I don't want to remove the lettering and later find out it was factory. To me it makes no difference, its a rare pistol on its own merits. Thanks !!
