Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

M57 T stamped with code

M57 with a T stamped on or near the pistol's code, generally on the frame.
This is a H code pistol H21XXX with an added T on the slide and receiver. My specimen.

Here are views of more H codes, but one has the TH code . Source is orig post, Byhisello. The photo on the left is H1083XX and the photo on the right is TH2122xx. Note the H1083xx crest is the same as a K code crest. The "TH" is a M57 as Byhisello states... "where the T appears stamped prior to the H code and appears to have been done at a different time than the rest of the sn."

M57 No Crest Version
Copes Dist. sold M57s lacking crests>
Yugo M57 TT Tokarev 7.62x25 Surplus Pistol w/Crest [sr] Price: $209.99 Without Crest $199.99

These are really nice condition surplus pistols. These pistols are produced in Yugosalvia by Zastava. These are surplus pistols so the bores are not in new condition. These will have the sought after yugo crest on top of the slide. These pistols come with one 9rd magazine.
M57 with a sterile slide - no crest was stamped- we had 2 former members with these pistols. Please repost these specimens.

M57 No prefix or suffix code

On some of the early M57 pistols there is No prefix or suffix code associated with the serial number. There is just a serial number stamped on the pistol.


orig post, No prefix or suffix M57, serial # 4828. Note the this is same crest type as seen in the 5th variation B code.

So if anyone has an M57 and its a different crest or new crest type not shown for the code, please post a clear photo. I have no idea why so many different crest styles are present. Different artists as the die stamp worn down? Please post the code and Serial number example (N 1111XX ). I need examples of A & G codes as well as the unmarked M57s shown on the last lost page of the original post. Has anyone seen or have an O or L code M57? I would like some clear photos of a P code. Thanks
Thank You, M67 for an example in original condition, a specimen lacking a safety and import mark. Take a look at M67s lower post. I added your G code.

If I'm reading this correctly, I own a D-313** but, mine has the import thumb safety added. The D is the factory code? So much later version? There is no code(D) on my frame or barrel just the slide.

Let's back up a bit, how and where is these codes marked on these pistols, please?
What do the codes represent, like the German's were they used to hide the factory locations?
Steve
The serial number letter "code" is most likely associated with the date of manufacture. There is no code like on a K98 rifle. It is my way of saying a " letter" in the M57 serial number. This serial number is generally found on the frame, barrel, and top of the slide. There are both prefix lettered serial numbers and suffix lettered( A & B only) serial numbers. There are no codes like found on K 98 rifles. Maybe a poor choice of words for the " prefix or suffix letter in the serial number of the M57 pistol". A short way of saying that all the time?? I do not know how many factories there are. To date there is no book written about the M57 pistol history. More info is on the gunboards link that I mentioned in the first post. There is info about hand grip markings and & inventory of serial #s for the M57.
Here is the link posted for access to general info only. Lots of research here. Mods :think: if this in not allowed please delete:

Yes Steve PLEASE. Lets have some pics of the T H markings , its crest and overview of the pistol, and serial #. Is it H prefix code? If its has a D prefix code we really need your specimen photo documented.
