Anyone ever hear of SxS marked Heinrich Keighoff. Suhl? It is a high quality side lock . And yes, I did not leave out the “r”

In any way there is a spelling mistake, often seen with US writers:
The name is Krieghoff, never Kreighoff

SXS40,
It would help if you post photos of the markings, including Proof Marks.

Furmann, That is the type mistake I often make.

My understanding, which helps me when spelling, is the second vowel is a long vowel and the sound we pronounce. As in Kreeghoff. If it was spelled Kreighoff, we would pronounce it with an “eye”.

Don’t know if that’s any kind of rule but it generally works for me.

That is the rule. "I before E, sounds like an E. E before I, sounds like an eye."
Keeping those combinations straight can be important.

Proof marks mean everything here.

Does it have an HK in circle of dots? Or HK and an anchor

It was very difficult to photograph the barrel flats do to the light reflection off of the jeweling. Hope this is readable.
