Asking for help.

I am trying to buy a Dane Lahti with D prefix,
and need help in order to determine if it has import marks.

Where on the pistol would I find an import mark ?
Does anyone know of any specific importers of these pistols ?
What might these import marks look like ?

Lastly, what would be the $ value of one of these pistols in 90% condiition...
...with import mark ?
...without import mark ?

Any help, please.

<<Where on the pistol would I find an import mark ?>>

The underside of the barrel is a typical location, although I've also seen import marks under a grip and at the bottom of the butt.

<<Does anyone know of any specific importers of these pistols?>>

I bought a large quantity from Navy Arms about 10 years ago.

<<What might these import marks look like?>>

By law the import mark must include the import company's name and city. These markings are usually abbreviated and stamped in a tiny font.

<<bayard,what does your import mark look like?>>

I don't own any import marked guns at present. If I remember correctly, the Navy Arms import stamp is something like "N.A. Co." on the first line and then a second line with an abbreviation for Ridgefield New Jersey. I don't remember the exact details. You should be able to see a wide variety of import stamps in any gun store.
