P6 is the government designation of the P225. "224" is not a model number. It's the last three digits of the serial number you will find on the frame and the barrel.

It's proof signs and ownership markings.
P6 is the German designation for the P225. P6 stands for P225, like M9 for Beretta 92 in the USA.
NW is the ownership marking of the state police of Nordrhein Westfalen, Germany.
1/80 is the production date of proof date of the pistol.
224 the last three digits of the serial number
The square eagle over BMI 8 is the acceptance stamp form a federal inspector
Eagle over BMI is the proof mark form a federal proof house. The pistol passed successuflly an overpressure test of the chamber.
BMI = Federal office of internal affairs.
Germany has two type of proof marks. What's normally found are commercial proof marks with proof dates (date code) from a state owned proof house. Small arms issued to a federal service in Germany are inspected and proof fired in a federal proof house. Identical acceptance markings and proof sings can be found on Walther P1 pistols issued to the Bundeswehr.
Same procedure, same specs, but different markings. Commercial proof marks can be found on service small arms, but federal proof marks never on small arms made for the commercial market.
Your pistol is a P225 made to LEO specs, in January 1980. It was inspected and proof fired in the federal proof house of Meppen or St.Wendel in Germany and issued as P6 to the state police of Nordrhein Westfalen.
