I never posted this here and had some questions about this gun. I bought it some years ago as a WWII era PP with Reichs Ministry of Justice stamp. Someone said that the fact that the safety was not 90 degrees meant it was a much later manufacture. Can anyone comment on that or anything else they notice? Thanks.

Cannot find anything on post WWII PPK 9mm serial numbers, but have a look in the ejection port, there should be a stamp of a single antler, next to it you should find a two digit stamp, this is an abbreviated date stamp i.e 67 would equal 1967, 59 would equal 1959.

Since the PP says Ulm on it, you don't really need the angle of the safety to know it's post-war ;)

It's a former police pistol with the coat-of-arms of the state of Hessen.
