Does a crown over a gothic letter indicate military or commercial
acceptance? This mark is located on the upper left side of the frame
above the trigger

I just bought an issue marked piece with the "crown-fractur" mark.
How common are the issued marked compared to the non-marked pieces?
I paid $180 OTD. Condition is 85% original finish. No pits.
Is this price Ok?

Hello Ned,

I'd say at least 90 percent of Langenhans were WW1 Army
accepted, but that's just my own impression. Does anyone
have a serial number survey to support or dispute that?

And I'd say you paid about half the 'going rate' for a
matching and unmodified example in your gun's condition.

No special markings beside the fraktur letter?

Rich,
Last weekend at a show, I saw a 99.9% COMMERCIAL Langenhan!! This was only the second one I have seen in a lifetime of collecting. It had an original holster too. He wanted $800. for the rig. Fortunately/unfortunately I didn't have that much discretionary income to spend. I think it was a little high anyway. I didn't catch the serial number but it wasn't sold so I may see it again and I will take pictures.

Hi Rich,

The one I just bought only had the Fractur-D.
However, it had a "sister" sitting with it and I'm trying to figure out if it should join the first in my collection.

See the new topic in this forum titled
"Langenhan 7.65 unit mark trans. Help!"

I'm heading back to pick up the first in a few days, and could purchase the unit marked one at the same time if it's a WWI or Weimar military piece.
It's actually in better shape than the one I bought, about 95%.

Regards, Ned

For anyone who collects data on these pieces.....

My new Imperial fractur-marked piece is serial number 55906 and has the wood grips.

No other special markings.

Thanks for all your help....these are pretty neat pieces.
Glad I bought it.

Regards, Ned
