Your Luger has mixed numbers (parts came from different Lugers). The top part was manufactured in 1912 and sometime between late 1920 and early 1921 a 1920 Reichswehr property stamp was added. The M.W./.J.R.12.8. on the grip strap is a unit marking applied during the Weimar Era and signifies a Minenwerfer Kompagnie for the 12 th Infanterie Regiment.
The 535-633-11-102 appears to be some sort of personal ID number.
