Oops, my bad, I was going on the fact it does not have the small safety protrusion that the French required. The small button forward of the safety that kept the holster from engaging the safety when gun was re holstered. It may have been a very early French issue.. The First French contract was not awarded until 1915, The 1912 is the patent date of patents issued to Esperanzza and Unceta. { believed to be the slide safety in lieu of a grip safety}. As has been posted , if it is a French contract gun there will be two stars on the bottom of the grip, one on either side of the magazine release, does it have the stars???
