I just aqquired my first luger from someone having a garage sale. he advised it was found in an attic of a neighbors house after he had passed away. It is all matching except for the mag. which does have a wood bottom and inspector marks w. crown over what looks like a roman # II and a + just under ser # 4636, there is a second mag in the mag pouch of the brown leather unmarked holster which has an aluminum looking bottom with what appears to be an ank symbol and a stick eagle over 63, ser # 6128.
The gun itself has the 1918 on the reciever front and the crown over ERFURT on the top with ser # 9234 on the left side, all parts have # 34 on them. there are numerous proof stamps on the reciever side ( 3 next to each other with a small space than another which looks like a an eagel w wings spread) and above these is a mark, crown over RC (arsenal repair?) The blueing appears about 90+% with the safety lever, trigger,action release, long metal piece on right side of reciever (extractor?) being straw ( good shape. The grips appear original and also have #34 stamped on inside. Overall the gun appears about 95% and sorry I dont have a camera or I would include photos, will try to get some at a later date. Thanks for any and all input. BTW I paid 250.00 for it, Got lucky

Sounds like you got a heck of a deal!

Pictures can be digital camera, or even laying on a flatbed scanner, we'd love to see them.

And BTW, a "shooter" (non-collector luger) in my part of the world is usually $400-$550, and a extra magazine is worth $75-$100 and holster $75-$150, all depending on condition, I am sure several people on the forum would offer you $400 sight unseen for this Erfurt. :)

Hi Corey,

From looking at the pictures, especially the side plate "island" area, your Erfurt appears to have been buffed and reblued. Still for $250, you got a great deal.

Based on the pictures, I agree with Tom A's statements.
