Hello,

Maybe this can be a sticky?

I am starting a serial number databases on Imperial proofed Bayard 1908 pistols, only those without Liege proofs / German proof. The goal is to determine about how many were made during the war and also what the serial number range is...

Please post or PM me your serial number, I never share names of owners with anybody.

Thanks for your help!
Anthony

Mine is number 190418. They must have produced more than you would expect judging by their apparent scarcity as opposed to the difference in the 2 numbers supplied so far.

Thanks and please keep it coming... Replies from me will be slow as I am in the hospital after a bad accident. I have weeks of rehab left before I can get out of the wheel chair.

Three examples from past auctions

You may have already thought of this Anthony, but I searched past auctions on gunbroker and gunauction. I found three additional examples of Prussian marked Bayard 1908 pistols with serial numbers 174668, 174113, and 110392. I have attached pdf versions of the relevant auctions with photos. The recent buyer of 174668 has placed the pistol back up for auction; it closes on April 30, 2014:

I hope you will be able to reschedule your presentation to the Virginia Gun Collectors Association on these interesting pieces. If so, I will bring Imperial marked 189389 for your inspection! Take care!

Hi, Thanks for the number. we have not discussed it yet as I am only now starting to walk but have another surgery next month. I hope to do it next year, if they will have me.

Thanks again

We just put out an initial request for next years presentation topics at our last VGCA meeting. We would be happy and honored to hear you whenever you are ready.
