Let me add this. The CIP organisation and its now standardised CIP proof mark have nothing to do with the EU. The CIP was already established in 1914.Early proofs, up to 1939 were a crown over N and the eagle/N was used until European Union proofs came into being.
Thanks for the correction. My mind wasn't working this morning and slipped a cog. Had a big storm yesterday and lost power for 13 hours. So the spider webs were working overtime. Between the storm and quarantine I'm lucky to be lucid at allLet me add this. The CIP organisation and its now standardised CIP proof mark have nothing to do with the EU.

If you are asking about your your PP with the NDS stamp I would guess it was manufactured sometime during the 1960's or '70's. But I did have a question, is the PP a .380 ( 9mm/k) or is it a 7.65 mm (.32 ACP)? I was thinking most of those were issued in .32 but am not sure. I cannot tell from the sentence you wrote. Some SN charts are up in the FAQ section. Perhaps a link will work. First you have to understand what pistols you have. I think you said you purchased a PPK/S which would put it 1968 or later and a PP with the NDA stamp. The left side of the slide designates the caliber. 1917Could some one tell me where the chart for serial numbers are? I read that the serial numbers 2??,000-370,??? Were serial numbers during the war because they wanted there to be different numbers for those in WWII. My PP also has a, what looks like a Nazi Eagle, over a capital N which is on the barrel, next to the trigger and on the handle. Again, I heard it was a Nazi mark then someone said wrote it was a test marking. I can’t seem to pin down a date or wartime or 1960’s. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I would love to post pictures but don’t know how. Thanks!
