Fitted with straw finished small parts, "GESICHERT" and "GELADEN" marked safety area and extractor, and checkered hardwood grips. With a brown leather holster stamped "1918" and a N. Burghard maker's mark on the back, and an unmarked takedown tool. Provenance: The Paul Crockett Jr. Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 85% plus of the original blue finish, showing mild scuffs on the barrel and grip straps, high edge wear, and mild spotting and handling marks. 80% of the original straw color is present on the small parts, and the grips are very fine with a coat of protective varnish added, and some mild dents and scuffs. The holster is very good, with tearing of the belt loops and scuffing and cracking overall. Mechanically excellent.
