I have already answered this post in an earlier string. I have seen these photos before. This is a 1908 Military model. Rough condition. Shooter Value 7-900. More with any holster. Collectors want to see these in at least 85%. This one is about 60%. But it is a good honest peice. keep it an enjoy.

Then it must have a date on the top...since it has a military proof. All military guns were dated after the 1908. Unless this is a .30 cal In that case you should have told me. If it is a .30 cal then it is a post war rework ...they often took off the date in the re-work process. are you sure what cal. it is? Have you fired it. The crown over N proof next to the military proof indicates a post war re-working process...as many of these guns were used again and again with police during Wiemar period.

The only other possibility is that it is what we call a 1914 commercial/military. This would explain the crown over N proof. But the finish is so dark I cannot see clearly. This variation has a very special polish and high grade finish. They were bought by officers and used during the war. Again with the condition value is at the shooter level..anything below 60% generally has only shooter value. The wood and side plate indicate hard use.

I have looked at the photos again. It took some close searching but I think I have it now, I see in the very corner of top of the side plate that this gun has a sear safety....so that means it was converted to Weimar police use (1920s) as I suspected. The sear safety was placed on all police guns since the gun fires when it is dissembled if their is a cartridge in the chamber. Not a good thing to happen when cleaning.

The unit markings and mixed civilian and military profs indicate use post war in a police station.

Again, if it is the value that you want to know there is no significant change in value for a gun with this much wear.

hello,,if it's a p-38 it's not a luger or vica versa ,,lugers can value 600 and up depending on condition..p-38 generally value 450 -1000+ i think yours amy be marked cyq ..if so there were 2 variations and both are different in value ,,,,discover seems to know these types of ww2 handguns better and may be better suited to help on actual values once we determine the variation yours is

Ok this is an Imperial Luger made in 1914. The 29 is the last two digits of the four digit serial number.

Have to see a photo to be exact on value...many are re-blued. If original..then approx. 1500

Hello!

I have been reading some of your posts. I have two handguns that my father brought back from WWII. The first is a P38 the has never been fired. It was packed in a wooden box & wrapped in a kind of wax paper as I recall. It has a holster & extra magazine as well. It's markings areP.38, ac 41, ser. # 4461H (clips as well), 359 stamped under the Eagle on all other visible parts, brown plastic (?) handgrips, black leather holster is in excellent shape.

The second piece is A Luger I believe. It's markings are P.08, byf, ser.# 4657, 57 stamped on the top of the ejector slide & other spots on the gun, 135 stamped under the Eagle, Brown wood grips, original bluing with some wear from in & out of the holster. Clip # does not match the gun, looks like there might be a "G" under the ser. # below the barrel.

Any assistance you could offer in valuing these guns would be appreciated. k

I was just reading some of your posts and saw you have an 816 number, i am also in the KC area. I was reading because I am looking to buy a 1936 Luger but cant find anyone to give me a rough estimate on the gun.... This is a 1936 S/42 decent shape #2501 everything matches except the mag. It also comes with a rough 1938 holster with someones name stamped into it. If you can respond that would be GREAT! I can also send you some pictures to help. Thanks!!
