    Hello

    A nice looking silver grade attributed Assmann. These injection molded with integral hinge and catch are considered late war variants.

    The mm "4" is thought to indicate the machine or die used to produce this example. There are mm'd 1, 2 and 3 examples as well.

    Yours looks to be in "better than average" shape, congrats!

    Best Regards, fischer

    Thank you fischer. So the "4" isn't actually a maker mark then? Is that theory you proposed widely accepted?

    What fischer states is the accepted belief currently, but has not been proved 100%, it's the best guess at the moment. Read this thread from WAF for the low down on the details.

    Hope that helps.

    Hello

    First, these numbered examples have been "Attributed" to the firm of Assmann & Sohne due to the "like" obverse design they share with the Assmann marked examples. The Assmann marking is the large, raised "A" and match the copyrighted, company logo for the firm of F.W. Assmann & Sohne, Ludenscheid.

    Secondly, because of the same obverse design shared with the Assmann marked examples, the 1-4 numbers are not considered a "Präsidialkanzlei Lieferant Number" assigned to a certain maker.

    As stated in my first reply, the "thought" is the numbers indicate a machine or die used to produce these examples. This theory is widely accepted by the collecting community.

    Is there another theory? If so, please present the argument as I am not aware of any other.

    Best Regards, fischer
