I am no expert of 1935 Beretta's but it appears to me that it is an early version of the German procured 1935 Beretta's , which I have found the 4UT acceptance stamp to be found on either side of the frame. There may be a serial range cutoff for when this 4UT is located only on one side but is unknown to me. Somewhere around 560,000[?] serial the finish is more of a rough milled texture and is of a phosphate type rather than bluing as found on the early versions.
