Fixed sights, with the "42" date on top of the chamber and "byf" on the front toggle link. Overall metal finish is blue, with checkered grips and an alloy base magazine. The grips and magazine are unnumbered, otherwise the parts are matching in a "military" pattern. With a brown leather holster dated 1938 on the back, and a mixed numbered magazine. Attached to the flap of the holster is an enamel badge for the 26th Infantry Regiment; a component of the "Big Red One" 1st Infantry Division, the 26th saw action in multiple amphibious assaults in Africa and Europe, including action at Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge. No specific details regarding the owner of the pistol are supplied, but Lugers were extremely popular souvenirs and war trophies, and a soldier of the 26th no doubt would have multiple opportunities to claim one in the field.
Excellent, with 97% plus of the original blue finish, showing bright edge wear and mild handling marks. The grips are also excellent with mild stains and dings. The holster is very good, with a number of scuffs and scratches overall, a small hole punched in the back of the body, and strong stitching. Mechanically excellent.
