Your Dreyse was manufactured sometime between 1907 and 1918 at Rheinmetall, Sommerda. I would guess that the G.M.S.G.Nr.63. may be a German police marking, however I cannot identify it.
What is your guns serial number?
If you put your post in the Central Powers section you will probably get a better response by folks that know a lot more about the Dreyse than I.

The SA (Finnish) stamped Dreyse is a rare pistol. Please post photographs under the Finnish section.
Thanks for your post.

The Dreyse pistol is listen in a 1942 list of Finnish pistols in service so they must have had enough to justify assigning a designation. I sure would like to have a photo for the book.

I was unable to open your photos but the marking is from the Großherzoglich Mecklenburg-Schwerinische Gendarmarie and it is listed and illustrated in History Writ in Steel, p. 242. I, too, am interested in knowing the serial number of this pistol. Can you post photos here in this thread?
