East Germany

I do not have the time to answer questions about guns or proofmarks.

 

Jag har tyvärr inte tid att svara på frågor om vapen eller provstämplar.

EastGerman proofmarks 1945-1992

Back to German Proofmarks 1945-1992

East Germany (DDR) adopted the marks and proofs laws of 1939 when the communist regime went to rule the country until 1974. The Suhl poof mark was changed 1950 to the old one since there were no understanding and acceptance for the DR mark outside East Germany. At the same time they changed the marks.
