Poncho, that NPv marking that you show on your datasheet of your pistol is the final smokeless powder proof from the Proof house in Vienna. Other markings simular to that are the NPF (Ferlach), NPp (Prague), NPw (Weipert), and NPB (Budapest). The 21 and proof below that are also Austrian firing proof marks. The lightly struck symbol below the 21 is also a firing proof. If I can interpret what Gerhard Wirnsberger's book on proof marks is trying to tell me then the 21 and other proof are the first proof of the pistol in 1921. The NPv is a latter reproofing due to later proof laws.
