Default Unit Mark Question

Understand that this is a Luger website but a lot of the members have extensive knowledge of other early European weapons and markings.

I have a Model 12 Forrmer Stop 7.65 pistol that has a unit mark on the left side between the trigger and the wood grip. Wondering if any of the members can tell me what it means.
I believe that it is of Hungarian or Austrian origin, but who knows.

2,T.O.G.1.1.15.


There are no Imperial German proof marks on this pistol. Stamped on the trigger guard webbing on the left side it is marked,
C, a shield with a line running top to bottom, 2C

Any info would be appreciated.

Further investigation has revealed that this pistol was accepted into the new Hungarian military in 1920, so that explains the 2C on the trigger guard web. Appears that the number 0 stamp was broken and the impact didn't close the circle.
The Hungarian military established with the breakup of the Austian/Hungarian Empire didn't use unit marks, so there is still a mystery involving this pistol.
