Smitty, it sounds like your gun shop guy knows what he's talking about. The emblem you describe in the grip sounds alot like a Hitler Youth pin. These things were very commonly inset into Luger wooden grips by G.I.s. You can be assured that the GI art work reduced the collector value of the pistol.
