The left side of the slide is marked with the later model 1914 caliber, model, and serial number marking with the Kongsberg Crest and "WaA84". Inspection mark behind the rear sight. Matching serial numbers found on frame, slide, trigger, safety, mainspring housing, grip safety, barrel, and slide release. Includes a brown leather holster, three magazine pouch, and three extra magazines.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 90% plus original phosphate finish with handling marks and some dings. Grips are good with some spots of softening in the checkering and traces of original black varnish. The magazine release needs some slight adjustment, but is otherwise mechanically excellent. The holster and magazine pouch are fine with some flex wear on the flaps and age cracks. All three magazines are very fine.
