My son picked this up for me yesterday on his way out of town , I won't have it until he returns Monday but he did disassemble to check if matching and bore. Cosmetically its not in very good condition but mechanically there is very little wear and the bore is great. -1875422354253413323.jpg received_791286008286649.jpeg received_2481867568773109.jpg received_356030405534122.jpg received_2975292059248995.jpg received_3805838442768704.jpg Thanks for any comments, John.

It’s a late war police issue PP. I like it for sure. The eagle over the F denotes police issue. The ac being in line with the serial number on the slide is kind of rare too.... Manufactured in late 1944...

It is funny how things work out as only about a week ago I posted my 38H and it was pointed out that the holster was for a PP. I replied as to needing a sauer holster and finding a PP for my holster.

I had him send me pictures of the mag this morning ,posted above and see that it does have the later W stamp for not hardened. Now I have to find a second. He sais the left grip that looks cracked actually has a gouge taken out of it.

very nice Police issue PP. I really think it was just a thin blue right from the beginning than was more susceptible to wear. The think blue appears to be too even to be just wear. Congrats!

I can see no signs of buffing or any Bubba upgrading. I think a nice honest PP representative of its time and place

I would have to agree with Heinz on original finish. Everything looks very crisp without signs of refinish.

IMG_20200908_191211792.jpg IMG_20200908_191309965_2.jpg Got the PP from my son today. A second W marked mag will be at the top of my want list now.
Also now that I have it in hand and have been able to break it down you can see that the blueing was never very dark. It reminds me a bit of the finish on a couple of my Radom VIS's.
