Quite unusual...
Subject three stamps appear to be European proof marks, namely first one on left, eventually eagle over N for nitro-powder (?)
A better picture would help, including markings on barrel at ejection port
If I had to pick a country, I'd say East Germany (linked to China via USSR in the Communist world)

The middle markings appear to be the mark for Munich, but can't make out the marking on right side.

Rather than Munich the marking appears to be for Melfrichstadt. The last marking is probably the year of proofing.

Although the bulk of the SMP pistols that were imported came to the USA some were imported by other countries. There used to be a gun shop in Aldershot in the UK that had some SMP pistols. I purchased a few of them. A few were given as gifts at some point and ended up in other European countries.

Why is it that all the SMP pistols look to be rode ha5d and put up wet? Even the NYPD guns seem to have fared better.
Easy, because they were rode hard and put up wet every day. Very High humidity in Shanghai...

I'd rather have obiefox's PDNY 380 hammerless

Some SMP Pistols survived in good condition complete with original factory walnut stocks.

From the owner in Brno, Czech. I met him on another forum as he is looking for a correct mag for it.

" I finally bought it from Germany. Unfortunately, it has the stamps of the German importer (Frankonia) and German firing proofs."
