    Pre-1943, the Germans would make K98ks in blocks of 10000 rifles, with serial #s 1-9999. Once rifle 9999 was made, they would reset the serial to 1, with an a, resulting in serial 1a. This was known as a-block. a-block was serials 1a-9999a. Once 9999a was made, the letter was incremented to b, making b-block. This would repeat until z-block was hit. Once 9999z was made, the serial was reset to aa-block, resulting in 1aa-9999aa.

    Your correct serial number is "3517w". There are no bcd 4 receiver in the Sauer "n" block.
