I have a 1944 Walther P38 and I have been able to identify every marking on it so far but this one under the barrel. It looks like a crown with a uppercase N under the crown. Does anybody know what that stamp means?

Thanks for the help

Its the commercial Nitro proof. Does the barrel match the rest of the gun? This is unusual to have this on a wartime peice. This must have been reworked after the war. The wartime Nirto proof is an eagle over the N.

Could we get photos of the entire pistol?

Edit:

It's difficult to tell from the photo but it may be an East German (DDR) Crown/N proof stamp applied to your WWII P-38 when it was repaired or reworked after the war.
