Hoya74, it appears your 263005 is a correct early, pre-January 15, 1940 commercial example. The Crown N proof changed to the Eagle N on January 15, 1940. The mag appears correct also. The pigskin holster probably was added later when cow/horse leather became more and more scarce. That's really difficult to determine because of the supply of leather to different producers of holsters. Regardless, you have a nice desirable Sauer. Congrats, Jim Cate, author of the Sauer reference books.

Hoya74, with that one pistol you've now catapulted yourself into: among the Sauer-elite
Congratulations and thanks very much for the pictures !!
I also agree with Doug (nieuport)! Congrats on finding a nice early commercial Sauer. JIM
You gentlemen (and others here) are so very kind, thank you so much! I bought the Sauer (263,005) last Friday (the 13th) which often seems to be a good day for me especially having been born on Friday the 13th.

May I also solicit your opinions on my military Sauer? Unfortunately, I don't have a holster for it.

The Sauer looks good except someone has been inside of the slide probably to replace an extractor. Note the pin has been put back in from the right side rather than the left side which was its original position. I'm not totally convinced, but the pin was put in backwards for one of two reasons: 1/ by mistake; or 2/ an armorer's indication something had been repaired. That would include a new firing pin as well as an extractor. Best regards, Jim Cate
