Here's where it gets interesting. As I am both a LEO and a military gun collector, I am familiar with both re-blues and altered guns, and this appears to be neither. OTOH, the gun used to belong to a big city PD officer (throw down?), and the family has no idea about it's history. So, if anyone has any more info, I'd be glad to hear it. As of now, it appears to not be a "collectible" version and could affect my offer...hehe.... One more thing, it does have what appears to be a hand stamped set of initials on it. On the left side it J.J.,the right D.D. and a single J. and D. brackets the 1914 date. Other than that, it appears to have the many numerous Erfurt crown stampings all over it, as well as some letters under the wooden grips. Either way it is a good condition nice representation of an early Luger.... What's a reasonable value for such a piece?
