Description:

These pistols were originally designed by Theodor Bergmann. This Model 1910 example, manufactured by the Pieper firm of Herstal-Liege, Belgium, is one of 4,840 of this variation ordered by Denmark in 1910 for military use, with deliveries completed by 1912. Danish contract/property number "4115" marked at the right rear of the slide and Danish "crown/D" acceptance stamp at the left as well as on the bottom of the frame behind the magazine well. This Danish contract Model 1910 features slight improvements over the Model 1908 that preceded it, including semicircular cutouts at the bottom of the magazine well for use with magazines using concentric gripping surfaces, an "S" shaped mainspring, enlarged magazine catch and slightly larger grips. Fixed blade and notch sights, checkered grips with a lanyard loop on the butt, left side of the receiver marked "BREVETE./S.G.D.G.", followed by the three-line Pieper address and Bergmann's patent marking, and Belgian proofs on the right of the barrel, receiver, and frame. Matching serial number located underneath the front flat of the frame, on some of the internal components and on the magazine currently in the pistol. Matching serial number is stamped on the underside of the right grip panel and "14835" on the underside of the left grip panel, likely a factory error. Includes an extra unnumbered magazine and a Danish Order of the Dannebrog Cross.

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 70% original blue finish with some finish wear at the edges, some scratches and nicks, and a few patches of light pitting. Grips are also fine with some light handling marks and scratches, some light wear, and mostly defined checkering. Mechanically excellent.
