    That, with the e/359 and cursive code, looks more like an AC 43 to me. Walther would be the maker.

    This one says the same thing, they have not received word of his new unit FPN and direct her to the relatives of Wernicke for further info. Must have been a terrible game of waiting in those days.

    Is that the time that the Army (at the time Reichswehr) was required to make their swear to AH? This was done 2 August 1934 and afterwards. Judging by some of the helmets anyway.
