Post Krieghoff Object Lesson

Its time for a Krieghoff object lesson, concerning the Krieghoff rework back frame stamp.

The photo below is of the back frame of a Luger currently for sale on a dealer website. I'm curious to know if this shares the characteristics of known-legitimate Krieghoff rework frame stamps.

My question has nothing to do with buying this gun.

Rather, I had a chance to examine one of these at a gun show a few months ago, and the picture in my mind's eye is different from this photograph. I'm not sure I remember accurately, as well, which prompts the question. I seem to remember the stamping being much clearer and cleaner, the broken F looked different, there was no halo, and I don't remember if SUHL was present or not.

Is it likely the gun I examined was faked, is the one in the photo questionable (the SUHL really bothers me), or is it my memory which is questionable?
