Miss HSc 703857 - i am stunned...3 cuts on grip plate???

Look at this beauty, got it today - i dont now what to say...
The finish, the holster - almost brand new...
I think pistol, holster and mags has always been together since 1941...


NOTICE: the three cuts om the left grip plate high..., what could that mean???


This is one of the most...


Thank you

Any provenance on who carried it and where? Those look like notches to me. Could some Nazi have been notching the grip for each resistance member he executed.

Thank you Walt and Kevin...
The carrier was a German officer in Norway, and yes it could be execute or combat notches?

Too bad the grips can't talk. It's an exceptional addition to any collection. The notches look like they were cut with a knife.
Norway isn't known for land battles during WWII but there was resistance activity in support of a number of commando raids.
Germany also occupied Lapland to control some natural resources such as nickle mines. How did the Laps respond to the occupation?

Most likely the cuts in the grip are from concealed carry. The advantage of the small military pistol was constant carry. Especially in unfriendly territory during WWII.

Who notes that pistol is in the best shape he has seen a WWII HsC.
