Since mags serialized to their guns are a Military deal, I wouldn't expect one for an American Eagle to be marked at all since it is a Commercial. The Test Lugers were also Commercials, strictly speaking. You'd expect an unmarked walnut bottom and a nickel plated mag body assembled by the criimp/stake method. A mag with its wooden bottom coincidentally marked with a number in the "Test" range had nothing to do with the test Lugers, as one mag out of every ten thousand military mags--and Commercials beginning in the 20s-- will have that same number. Now, if you have a M1900 Luger with a Commercial serial number in the test range, that's a different story.
