Just acquired a 1938 Mauser S-42 Code P-08 Luger from the son of a deceased veteran who brought it back from Germany: serial #: 2029(k); receiver marked: SE/63, SE/63, MTP; barrel marked: from toggle looking down the barrel - at 3:00 (right-hand side) = MTP; at 10:00 (between left-hand side and top) = small SE/63; barrel proof: 8,84 (double-stamped). An unmolested original finish all matching numbers pistol, as brought back. It does have an interesting "blood spatter" mark on the upper front right-hand side of the bolt/receiver where the finish was removed by the acidity. Included with the pistol was a leather Imperial German military holster that is maker-marked inside the flap with "STEINMETZ/BRESLAU/1917" (a Jewish maker?). Also included was a SE/655 marked Mauser loading tool and a spare WWI serialized [9610 (f?)] wood bottom magazine. Under the serial and suffix letter (which looks similar to the breast cancer's ribbon device with a cross mark on top) is what looks like a "sword", not a "+". The aluminum bottom magazine in the pistol appears to be a parkerized un-marked aftermarket unit. I can post pictures of everything if there is any interest.

Just acquired 1937 S/42 SN 3097r, all matching, rust blued, strawed parts, no Mauser hump, DE63 DE63 MTP proofs, unnumbered grips. Gun looks like it was used a lot - has blood spatter (or pickle juice?) on the right side that lightened the bluing but did not remove it. Also a tiny E63 on top of the barrel.
