Gebirg,
 
I don't know if you noticed, but your "frame stop" is 16 cm long on your older variation #703857 and 14 cm long on your #904050.   Your good photos show a difference in length in this aspect of variation design.  Thanks for posting a side by side.  I had never measured mine until I saw your examples.

They are correct , black ejo grips, but it is not a late war HSc example.  It is early 1944.  One of the earlier phosphate finished ones.  You have a beauty.  Keep it safe.

Grip markings.

This is Sgt Joseph Trupiano's pistol given to him by Col. Felix L. Sparks on April 28, 1945.  Col. Sparks obtained it from Unterstumfuher Heinrich Wicker.  There is a 160 page IG's report about what happened this day including captured pistol documentation in the IG's file, as the IG wanted Gen. Patten to court martial Col. Sparks and several soldiers under his command for their activities on the surrender of 28 year old auxiliary SS 2Lt. Wicker and his SS concentration camp guards.   Patton pitched the recommendation of the IG in the trash can.  I have a good idea why Col. Sparks gave this pistol away to his jeep driver (Sgt. Trupiano), but I cannot prove it.  His comment in his witness account statement was that he had plenty of war trophies and did not need this one.  Sorry the notches photo is not better.  My son said they looked like they were made with the rough side of a key.

Just zoomed in on those three notches you mentioned.  They are well placed and near perfectly matched.  One can only wonder, the meaning.  I have a very special HSc with notches also, but the placement of my notches is at a different location, farther down on the grip, and they do not equal the application perfection that your example shows.  Mine appear more crudely applied.  Again, nice score!

I guess I need to get on Tom's list.  He seems to come up with great stuff.

I know that is so very true.  I am honored to be the first to congratulate you on this forum.  You and I know what an accomplishment you achieved.  And the condition just is "out of sight".   Way to go!!

Photo 5690 and the following photo posted.  They just looked a little too dark for my eyes to tell the electro penciled numbers.  You always have better eyesight than me.

I sure could not make out the serial number on the slide.  Better luck with more photos and alternate lighting.
