Default Walther PP 32 Serial # and/or date code

Hey all,

I have a Walther PP 32acp made in France. The Mahurin factory as you probably already know. Anyway I cannot find any date codes or anything on the gun. The serial number parallel to the grip on the right hand side is 15950 I believe. No prefixes or suffixes.. Those are the only numbers on the entire gun.. I took it apart, and there are no other numbers, dates, nothing.. I looked everywhere online to try and find out when it was made, but nothing helps.. Most sites are saying there is a date code in the slide or some type of stamp on the barrel. The eagle over the N or what have you.. This has NONE of that. It doesn't have the crown, doesn't have the eagle nor the N. It does have some stamps on it, but they don't look like anything.. Anyway, I wanted to know when it was manufactured and anything anyone here knows about it. I am planning on selling it eventually because I just don't like it and it is too small for my hands.. But I want to know some about it before I just get rid of it..

Thanks in advance

I also read on that site that it seems that dating the guns from the Mahurin factory is quite difficult.

Alright.. So the best I can come up with at this point, is that I was about right with my guesses.. That is the info.. It was probably made in 1952, it isn't very special, and that is about it.. I was told it does have french proof marks, but they were bad stamps.. So they don't really look like much..
These are the pics.. So just scroll right or left to see whatever view you want.. I would still like more info on it, but it seems that it is limited..

This should be the first picture of 21 total and when you view it, just scroll right or left depending on what you want to see.. Just copy the link and you can view it..

Yeah.. That is what I was told by another guy too.. So as I said, the best I can get so far is a guess on the year.. Which is about 52'
