Thanks to Mr Still and Huggiebear. Unfortunately, the holster I acquired with the weapon is not NSKK marked, although it is probably pre-WWII vintage type (no marks). Thank you for advising me as to what to pay my friend for this collectible.
Even with the recent escalating values, $5500 was way, way, way, overboard.
I've seen a couple within the last year for much, much, much less.
That fellow should have bought a PL. Much easier to sell within that $ range.
I think that the Brooklyn bridge is still for sale.
Someone should email him.
$5500 is an aberation, based not on a unique pistol, but on a unique buyer.
Jan's estimate is much closer to the current value, tops at about $3000-3500.
PS. No offense intended, only a bit of levity. Kindly, don't anyone get their knickers in a twist about this.
