Is there no chance that this "Himmler" Walther PP was faked?

Attributed to, presumably made for ... no need to read further but let's do it for guns sake. Funs sake, you bloody autocorrect! The story of the gun has been lost to history, is said to have, apparently and finally the monogram "hH". Heinrich Himmler would have had the monogram "HH".
So either the engraver of this showpiece could not spell or "hH" stands for something else. I go with the latter.
Or it was a stylistic choice of the engraver. Two capital H do not really look beautiful. HH.
A quick image search did not turn up other things from Himmler's property. Like a diary or other things that could have the letters.
edit found something: WMF manufactured silverware (/w Nirosta blades): http://www.wehrmacht...ad.php?t=904662
Two capital H.
The pistol could have belonged to anyone with HH as initials and enough money. Without prove like Himmler on a photo holding it, a receit etc. hard to pin it.

322000 dollars for an M47? And it wasnt even Kitsap county.
The Hiram Maxim Luger is really interesting.
