George did not say that pre-1916 Erfurt mags were un-numbered;
he said "very early" Erfurt mags were not numbered but did have 2 proofs.

"True early Erfurt mags were unnumbered with two acceptance stamps but all pre 1916 issue mags were numbered with two acceptance stamps. See the photos below. The spare with this rig was an unnumbered stamped mag."

Thanks for the reply because that wouldn't have been my experience. I've sold many common and rare Luger mags, some of which appeared to be wartime Erfurt replacements and they were unnumbered and double stamped. I have also had the same ones with numbers and letter block added both singly or which accompanied the pistol and were original to the period. Similarly, I have had what were originally S/42 and 42 replacement mags that somehow were matched to pistols complete with the correct font and cursive letter block while others remained unnumbered. What designations does Jan Still use?

Such numbered S/42 and 42 mags were probably the work of someone trying tp boost the value of a gun they had.

I've observed that most mag with the light diagonal grain pattern, like #2290g shown above, are DWM from the Weimar period. TH

What years did the DWM spare mags have circles or dimples instead of the + sign? Was that only for commercials?
