My Muser 1910 no.212971 (excellent condition)lacks a Mauser banner on the left side. It has eight notches on the back of slide compared to six on my other Mauser 1910 no.246757 that has the banner.They look the same except for those two differences. They both have the U crown front slide. Any reason for the difference?
Thanks for reading, Joe

Mine, sn 235214, has no banner and 7 notches. It does have a tiny circle with an inverted triangle inside on the back of the frame above the grips. Is this a Portuguese mark, as I've heard? What is it for?

All,
* Portugal was always a good customer of German made F/Arms.
* Roy Pender, Mauser Pocket Pistols 1910-1946, Pg. 64 states "The observed serials indicate that Portugal purchased pistols from the beginning of the postwar commercial production and continued to do so for 7 or 8 years. No 7.65mm pistols have been observed with the Portuguese marking." He then lists 10 S/N's intermittently ranging from #207286 to #331238.
* John LaCroix, AutoMag, Vol. XXXII-Issue 3 (6/'99), Pg. 51 expands the range of examples found w/ a "Triangle in a Circle" rear frame marking to 150876(Frame #37068) to 374792(Frame #[1]94466). However he continues w/ the observation "Based on their features, characteristics, Frame#'s & Sm Parts S/N enumeration, pistols in the S/N range 150000 thru 156000 appear to have been produced concurrent w/ pistols in the S/N range 205000 thru 223xxx. This was contemporary to the first four S/N's in Pender's list.
* Trust this helps as I am not a student of the 1910 Mauser Pocket. Possibly others with later information will comment.

I have two 1910's both came in Japanese holsters. One is serial number 383070 it has a smaller Mauser Banner than the other, both have the spare mags. The other is serial number 324174 it has the Portuguese triangle in a circle. My question is does anyone have any serial number ranges for these pistols that were used by the Japanese. Don
