I might be just imagining it, but there appears to be part of a code visible to the right of the Iron Cross, of which the letter K would seem to be a part.

Thanks Jochen & Jim
I have a negative start and a positive out-come - in the photo I can see that the last letter is a K but the 2nd letter looks like a T but I wouldn't bet my shirt on it
however, I do have CO+HK with FFS(A/B)117 - 27.08.40 at Kamenz from Fb.Fruhwacht
Jochen do you have a source that indicates CO+HK with W/Nr 58108? Thanks

To muddy the waters even further:
Focke-Wulf internal WNr.0108 was a FWA38b.
Fw58C-2 WNr.0108 was built by Fieseler and had the internal Fieseler WNr.0108. Often seen written as WNr.0108F
Fw58C-2 WNr.58108 was built by MIAG

Thanks Jochen & Norbert
I agree that the Focke-Wulf W/Nr sequence did have 108 as Fw A 38b - D-2073
MIAG also had Fw58 C-2 as 58.108
However, Fieseler's licence production of the Fw58 C-2 ran from 01F to 98F and then from 150F to 171F - Total of 120 a/c
Fieseler filled in the gaps with it's own designs - Fi 158 V1 & V2 as 101 - 102 and Fi 158A-0 as 103 to 107
The sequence jumped from there to 140 as the F 2 and then to 150 as mentioned above
