As I understand it, 1914 type navies were numbered in the "Commercial" style. Kenyon, p34 indicates that commercial style numbering did not include the thumb safety lever. I have seen several examples, mine included, without numbering. However, Kenyon p157 illustrates a 1916 navy that looks like it has its safety numbered.
Jan's Imperial Lugers, frontpiece 15a seems to show a serial also. Anyone have any thoughts about this?

Thanks, Bruce

This is the subject I've been looking for! I also have a 1914 type 1917 dated navy and the safety lever and the safety bar are both unnumbered. I have looked at every picture I can find on the net and in Jan's Imperial Lugers, and every one I have seen had a number on these parts. I have wondered if these parts were correct on my gun. Now atleast one other guy, Bruce, owns and has encountered others where atleast the thumb safety was not numbered. I'm beginning to feel a little more confident.
