    Hi all,

    I have a 1937 Walther PP (.32 Auto) that I am looking to sell. I'm trying to get a good read on the value of the gun (condition and description below), before posting. Can anyone share their experience with older guns and what they've seen in terms of value?

    I did check GunsAmerica, and GunBroker. The prices range from about $2k-$4k depending on the condition.

    The serial number dates back to 1937 (Pre-war) gun and was issued to an officer in the Finance Ministry. Carries the Crown N proof on the barrel, slide and frame. Bares R.F.V. 99xx W (hiding the numbers, not actual "X-out") on the frame. RFV stands for "Reichsfinanzverwaltung” (Reich Finance Administration). This organization was the Nazi equivalent of the United States IRS.

    The gun is in good condition. Mechanically everything works great. The bore is shiny, but the bluing is worn near the muzzle and on parts of the slide from holster wear.

    I bought this from a guy who's grandfather brought it back from his time in Europe during WWII. The holster is original tan leather in fantastic condition and also (barely) bares the matching serial number to the gun. The gun has the original magazine with metal finger grip extension.

    Would really appreciate any help here.

    Thanks!

    Thanks snoopidydoo...sorry for the initial post response. I have received a few low-ball PM's and was jumpy. It's a beautiful piece, and thanks for your comments.
