Description:

Known officially as the "Honor Weapon of the Political Leaders," PPK pistols with these special grips were presented to NSDAP officials for meritorious party service. Fixed sights, the Walther banner, two -line address and patents, and "Mod.PPK" on the left side of the slide, pre-1940s commercial "crown/N" proofs on the slide, chamber and muzzle, and matching numbers on the steel frame and inside the slide. The brown plastic, one piece, wrap around grips are checkered and have the NSDAP eagle holding a wreath encircled swastika insignia cast on the top of the both sides, and the magazine is fitted with a flat steel floorplate. With extra magazine, Robert Simpson authentication letter and period manual in German.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 97% plus of the original blue finish, showing light handling marks and minor edge wear on the top right forward slide. 90% plus bright original nitre blue remains on the safety lever. A few tiny nicks and a vertical hairline crack are both visible on the otherwise fine grip, which has fine detail in the eagles. Mechanically excellent.
