I'm just a beginning collector here but according to the book I have the price range runs from $ 450.00 for a Luger in poor condition to $ 2750.00 for an excellent one.

Hi Ron, according to Jan's Third Reich Luger Book, there were about 38,000 S/42 Lugers produced in 1939 compared to about 85,000 Code 42 Lugers. I have found the S/42 Variation is difficult to find in collectable condition. There is a significant premium for the S/42. I would estimate the S/42 would be about 1 1/2 times the cost of the Code 42 in the same condition.

The 1939-S/42 is only found in four suffix letters. - n - was the beginning suffix and it was shared with the 1938-S/42 Lugers. - o -and - p - were all 1939-S/42 pistols. They shared the - q - suffix with the 1939-42 production. I have concluded there were less than 38000 of these pistols.

There were no 1939-S/42 Lugers in the - b - block. The - b - block was the end of the 1937-S/42 production and the start of the 1938-S/42 production. Try n, o, p, and q for the 1939-S/42. Good Luck.

During 1939 many collectors confused the - P - suffix with an - R -. I wonder if you might be looking at a - P - and thinking - B -. If in fact your pistol is a - B - block pistol, it was assembled way out of the normal range or I hate to say this but the bottom might not be original to the top. Any other ideas??
