My father has a 1918/1920 German Luger and was wondering the possible value? He does have the holster with what I am guessing is the soldiers name..
I don't know much about the 1920 marked Lugers but having matching mags is a big plus.
Min for a WW1 luger with all matching numbers and mag in very good condition should be $1000 or better.
This could just as well be a $600 shooter.
Holster would range between $125-350
Bring back papers will add to the value.
after WW1, the german re-condition pistols. The double date merely alludes to the fact that the pistol was referbished in 1920, but made in 1918. As mentioned by Kleist, value depends totally on condition of gun and extras with it as with a holster and spare mage and with take down tool.
I don’t think the 1920 represents a date. It’s more of a property mark showing that it is a registered military weapon allowed in Germany per the Treaty of Versailles.
Some of these can be police marked, which would increase the value.
sorry, the double date 1918/1929 is a re-furbished german WW1 luger. and yes some were given to police elements after the war. but the 1918 and the 1920 are dates not property marks. check it out.
i have a 1918 luger with matching serial number 1, i have the bring back papers, i want to know the value, thanks
depending on overall condition anywhere from $1100 +/-
lets start with photos ok?
