I also have one of these. Serial number is F89450. Slide legend reads "P.Beretta - cal. 9 corto mo 1934 -brevet/ Gardone V.T. 1943 XXI". According to a Beretta letter obtained by a former owner, this pistol was shipped in June 1943 to the Italian Air Force Base of Caserta. The only proof mark on it is a crown over a flying eagle, indicating issue to the Royal Italian Air Force and this is unusual since pistols shipped to Air force were supposedly M 1935 in cal. 7,65 not 9mm as this one.
