IMO, this is definately a early WWII era PP. The C/N markings are correct for a pre-1940 production PP. The black grips are correct. Rankin, who wrote a few books on these pistols, states that the "RJ" pantographed initials on the front grip strap could represent one of several NSDAP organizations, Hitler Youth being one. Also, suggested by Rankin are Reichs Justice Ministry or Reichs Ministry of the Interior. Postal or RR, no.
Check out the P38 forum, PP & PPK section. They might have some recent info on the grip strap markings. Nice pistol with some desirable markings.
