    Thank you Scott, I truly do love having this in my collection. My worst fear is that another magnificient aviation group will appear and I may be tempted to end my relationship with my baby...

    Superb example....the sort i would love to give a home to !.... 'St' could be 'Depot unit' of the 1. Badisches Leib-Dragoner-Regt. Nr.20
    based at Karlsruhe, XIV Armee Korps, but i'll stand corrected.

    Thanks very much for the reply. You may be correct, as I have had a very hard time nailing down the meaning 100%. It took a long time and many inquiries to come up with what I thought it was. I would love to be able to know definitively one day.

    Maybe someone here can positively identify this unit marking?

    Hi Bill, thanks. Have you ever seen this style of marking before that might offer a hint as to what it means other than my original "assumption"?

    Steven, Here is the Unit designation for your great luger from a good friend of mine George Anderson and a authority on Imperial Luger Unit Markings, as well as a long time collector of the same...BILL...

    Bill, "It is 20th Dragoon Regiment Staff, Weapon number 2. He was probably a very senior sergeant. The 20th Dragoons were a Badische unit garrisoned in Karlsruhe. A neat gun and one worth more than a few bucks". George

    Bill,

    Thank you very kindly for taking the time to check for me, it is most appreciated. Please pass on my sincere thanks to George for sharing his knowledge as well, I am most grateful.
