Sean, as mentioned would appreciate serial to add to list on page 4, where you can see that most of the Prussian eagles are 24 grooves, except for couple earlier serials. And numbered mag followers only on the early production C96.

John, I totally thought I had the SN listed. It is 96689. From what I can tell it does fall right in with the list.
I had stumbled over some other pictures with numbered followers and it made we wonder. It seems to have all the regular markings consistent with others I've seen on this board. I wanted to add some more pictures, but my camera is having some focus issues.
Thanks for serial Sean. Apparently a good one.
Your interesting question “ how long were followers serialed” was a new one to me, so examined some and found follower serial presence up to late 14k and absence on/after 20k in commercial series.

jcoe- Sorry, I forgot to mention that. The grips are matching, and there is a Prussian Eagle at the front of the magazine. You are right, it is 24/24. I was counting the ridges rather than the grooves. That is what I get for posting so late.
