Description: serial #139033, 9 mm, 5 1/2" barrel with a bright excellent bore. Metal surfaces retain about 92-95% original blue, the loss due to some light fading, high edge wear and some wear on the underside of the barrel. The lock frame and hammer are a hardened gun metal gray and the safety, extractor and rear sight slide all retain very nice pale fire temper blue which has faded somewhat on the bolt stop. The grooved red 9 walnut grips rate about excellent with only minor handling marks and all their original enamel, they are stamped-numbered to the gun. The original lanyard loop is intact and all the pistol's numbers are matching. The walnut shoulder stock rates excellent with only minor dings and handling marks. The iron is numbered "033" and retains only traces of original blue with some very sparsely scattered very light spots of oxidation; the hinge retains generous traces of flaked original blue. The leather holster harness is a maker marked "Carl Trenner/Berlin/1916" and rates about excellent with tight stitching and seams, all the flex points showing light crackling but being supple overall. An original cleaning rod is included in the holster and there is a spare magazine spring in the front pouch pocket. There is a name written on the body of the holster in antique ink pen, it can unfortunately no longer be deciphered. Overall this is a super matching gun-holster-stock rig in a very seldom encountered state of condition. (35528-69) {C&R}
