lanza...... Welcome to the Forum. The BYF on the top is a code for Mauser who was the maker. Over the chamber you will find either 41 or 42 and that is the year of manufacture. There should be a full serial number on the front of the frame, on the bottom of the barrel and on the L/H side of the receiver. The last 2 numbers should be found on the other parts. The 2 E/655 are the military acceptance stamps and the other two eagles are the test proofs. 42 was the last year of Luger production for Mauser. Pictures will help if you can get them posted.

Welcome aboard....if you go to the forum for the WWII era pistols there is a thread about the 41-42 byf pistols that has several pics you can check out. The byf designation is for a Mauser-made pistol, checking the top of the chamber, the "41" or "42" are actually the years of production, 1941 or 1942. If you can check those and then post the serial number of the pistol found on the front of the grip strap (is there a small, lower case script letter underneath the number?) the guys here can help you further. There is even a chart showing the script letters so you can tell the "r" form the "f" or the "u" from the "v"....

After you get some help in resizing your pics to under 300 kbs you can post them, but this should get you started.

Good Luck

Jim..... The grips look to be black plastic which would be proper for either a 41 or 42 BYF Luger. Look on the top of the gun where the barrel meets the receiver and I think you will find one of those two dates.
