In researching H.P. Police pistols I have run across the Starburst/K stamp--ref. sample 23A, Costanzo, p.162. Costanzo calls this a proof for the Kommunial Polizei, and differentiates it from the Starburst/L for the Landespolezei.

According to Weimar Lugers, Görtz believes that this is an individual Inspector's stamp, and Joe Wotka thinks it is a police arsenal stamp (which one is unspecified). The only 'K' mentioned by Görtz & Bryans, and Still, is the Kriminalpolezei, contrasted with Landjägerei.

Does anyone know where the Kommunial Polezei/Landespolezei terminology comes from (and what they mean)? What is the current thinking on the terminology and the meaning of the mark?
