Found the on the web. It would appear this was made after 1925.

The serial number is on the right side of the frame, just above the trigger. The right side of the slide is blank. The inscription on the left side of the slide remained the same throughout production, though there were minor changes in the characters and spacing which cannot all be reproduced here. See Vanderlinden for complete details. Guns made prior to World War I feature serif characters in upper case with the exception of the “de”.

After World War I the inscription changed to sans-serif characters, but retianed the lower-case “de”.

There was a return to serif characters in the 1925-1929 time period, after which the legend appeared in all upper case sans-serif letters (including the “DE”).
