Bear with me gang as I am new at this, but here it goes. I recently acquired an S/42 in beautiful condition. It is date stamped 1939 with a ser# of 5140. All of the numbers match, it came with 2 mags (however one has the ser #7627). The tool is also with the gun. It has the holster with 'S6872' inscribed on the backside along with an upside-down pentagon with the letters 'WCSI' inscribed in the upper portion. Additionally, the appears to be a crest of sorts with a symbol in the middle which resembles the American Cancer Society's cross-like emblem. On the lower receiver there appears to be a capital cursive 'N' under the barrel. Can anyone enlighten me about this fine piece? I was able to determine that it was a Mauser by doing a little research but now I'm stuck. Any asistance would be greatly appreciated

Dan, I'm not a luger person. I collect other WW2 pistols. Even though you are new here, it seems to me that you shoul place your post on a more specific forum. The luger collectors here are very helpful and knowledgeable. This is the place to be, for Lugers especially.
