    Is the "X" stamp on a CZ 52 (crossed swords best I can tell)
    followed by 2 digit # the year the gun was put into military
    service? If so what year do you have?
    Mine is 54 , the holster has a 68 ink stamp.

    The pair of crossed swords are the Czech Army acceptance proofs. The number indicates the year of manufacture for the pistol.
    The Czech army has been using a set of crossed Roman swords as its symbol ever since their independence in 1919 from Austria. This crossed Roman swords symbol is still in use today.

    Easy CZ got it. It's the year the pistol was made. I have a 1953. I love it. You have one from the last year of production! My holster just has the "OTK" stamp, where is the "68" on your holster?
