    I have two 1871 Jägerbüchse made by Danzig that you can add to your list.

    1880/Danzig/2343/? (This rifle is marked "ORTSPolizeibehörde Bethanien 359" This would indicate that it was used by a Schutztruppe police unit at Bethanien in SouthWest Africa, prior to the formation of the Landespolizei in 1905. 359 would be the weapon issue number.)

    1881/Danzig/9564/? (This rifle is marked with the Imperial Eagle colonial proof mark next to an "S.") The "S" next to the Imperial Eagle colonial proof could stand for Spitzkoppe? With an issue number of 2104.
