Hi all forum members.

I need some help identifying unusual markings on my AC43Walther P38.
This particular one have Nazi eagle stamped on right side oftrigger guard - i never seen one in that location before! never !

Have you met with that - any ideas ? suggestions? does itmake it unique, valuable?

What may be value of such RIG? with original minty holster,2 mags and authentic bring-back letter?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The additional test eagle on the trigger guard is a known variation and does add value. I dont think anyone has ever identified what the extra proof mark is about, but there are others in the same serial range. I have owned 2 like yours.
Gun alone is about 1200 and the holster about 300 - plus mag..... probably 1500 to 1600 for the rig.
Are you interested in selling?

Nice. One day I'll find one. I just want one because it is a mystery. One of many mysteries from the Third Reich we'll never 100% know about.

UUHh...Buxton said it was an inspectors mark, usually after a problem/flaw was identified and then signed off again after fixing and placing back on the military contract line....so I guess thats the end of the mystery:)
