I've been collecting lugers for 50 years and this simson has a capital letter B at the end of serial number NOT the small letterthat I"m used to seeing? does the capital B increase the value of the weapon? and what could it mean?

ED I"ll try to get a friend to take pictures,if he won't I'll be glad to send it to you to inspect.The simson serial# 1897B 2 clips ser.#on bottom of each clip,then on side of each clip --clip1 and above that is 2001,clip2 and above that 2003.I think it may have been a presentation luger or maybe a prototype? I'm asking you the experts.

Well I had pictures sent to Mr. Jan Still I don't think he noticed the serial number or the capital letter at the end of serial # Or maybe he did because he said it was a police luger with 2 matching clips and holster, He was very nice and said the gun with the matching clips was worth around $400.00 so I guess I was wrong to think that one out of the 300 simsons made for the police with a serial number ending with a Capital letter is worth anything, but on the briteside I've been offered 500.00 for the holster----Ron

Ronald, I do not know, although if I remember, Jan said the bottom price would be $400, and I am sure it is worth a bit more. I have included the pictures you sent me, so others can reply or take a stab at value, but this is very subjective and many people would only want to give a value if they ahve the gun in their hands.

I have answered your questions before. Your Luger looks like an East German police rework. I do not know what the "B" signifies and do not think it adds to the value. Because I do not often get to gun shows or buy and sell guns I usually do not put a value on them. I guess $400 would be a starting point.
