Jan,

I have been somewhat reluctant to post my K date to this thread. I have not been able to verify some of the features of this pistol. In the end, I've decided to post it. If it is a fake, at least you will have one for comparison.
sn; 268, 037, 037 proofs, subv 1 all scriptic s, short slightly rounded barrel band, sight at front, slight indentation right side, frame hump, no dimples, grips matching no "s", mag #268+ 037 & S on bottom, badly struck "H" on spine, upper all high polish.

1) 510 (no letter suffix)
2) O/37 O/37
3) A Scriptic S on all parts, including the ‘S’ in the S/42 code
4) A Sharp short barrel band
5) B with thickened rear only on top, 'hump'
6) incorrect magazine

Purchased from Legacy Collectibles. Recently learned that this pistol was refinished by Ted Greene (verified by Ted).

Hi WLyon,

No, it was not sold as having an original finish. The written description clearly stated that this pistol was professionally restored.

"This K date was among the first Mauser Lugers made, it is number 510. It looks VERY close to original. Dust blue finish is all correct and the numbers on this gun are all matching; including the take down lever, the trigger, the safety bar and lever, the extractor, the hold open, the toggle pin, and the toggle links. The firing pin is marked with a Gothic S but not numbered. Grips are both number and have the S and the Gothic S is on all the right parts. This is a REAL K date - not a made up gun, but professionally restored to near original. Bore is frosted but not pitted. The magazine is not matched but Mauser, wartime, Eagle 63."
