Submitted is a 1907 Dreyse which by all accounts is one very ugly pistol but nevertheless has quite a bit of history to it. Having originated in the Imperial era, transfered to the Weimar era,and reconstructed in the Nazi era while still maintaining the entire rig together some 60 years later is a benchmark that does not come by very often . Collectors should avail themselves to these items when they surface as they are rare and should be sought-after. However you should be the judge on this occasion.

As one can see , there are two matching magazines but close observation discloses that the mags were used previously , 3 times before but are still functional. Thrifty Germans did not throw anything away.
