The four pointed star means: shape changed (official and military weapons).
The slide bears the civilian German proof stamp on the left side, eagle above N.
For further information, the whole pistol should be shown from the left and right side, in particular the complete German proof marks on the frame: eagle above N, antler (proof house Ulm), maybe a two digits number.

I recognize the number 65 in front of the antler. That means that the pistol was tested in 1965. At 99.9%, this is also the year of manufacture.

The inscription on the slide with P38 and the civilian proof marks show that this pistol was originally intended for civilian sales. The Austrian federal eagle in front of the letters BH on the right side of the frame clearly shows, as you have already written, that this pistol was used by the Austrian army.

All information comes from the book by Dieter Marschall.
