You appear to have a 42 dated byf (Mauser manufactured Luger) that seems to be matching except for the magazine. You should put some more photos on this site showing the back of the holster, the extra magazine, loading tool, etc. You failed to mention the condition of the bore which is also important in establishing the value. Thanks, Jim Cate, author of the J. P. Sauer reference books.

Agree with the above comments. The magazine that you show the serial number close ups of is not the one in the gun. So both need to be photographed, as does the holster. Need good photos of the grip straps and rear of the frame. The acceptance and proof stamps are fuzzy and weak and sometimes the are on these later Lugers with factory finish but more needs to be checked

Photo of the entire top (toggle) and rear of the pistol please. Based on the pics provided we can see the frame, barrel and receiver all match. But we can't tell that the toggle train is matched or original. Jim correctly stated it's a byf 42 based on the chamber date (shown), and it is. Along with the hidden #s Jason mentioned, we need more pics to verify the "all matching" part.
