Lookie here

I was shocked, but pleased to see that this Simson sold for 9K - that is one of the higher amounts I've seen.
The average Simson (decent bluing, no unit marking, not an S, not a dated), they seem to sell for around $2k - to $4K
Plus for this is the S 'code' (they made Simson & Co toggles at the same time as S) - so I am not sure still if the S was for police? However, of the 105 marked S on the toggle, my 755 records have 105 S code.
Yet only 23 with known sear or sear and mag safety?
The numbers tell me that the vast majority went into service unmarked, perhaps unit buys?

I saw that and then forgot. One of the main Luger guys for Morphys auction is a friend of mine (Russ) and he'll call and ask me if something sounds right or wrong (the guy who does the words, sometimes uses directly from the book)
