serial #4633l, 9mm, 4'' barrel with a mostly bright very good bore showing a few spots of light oxidation and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this 1940-dated pistol retain about 95% original blue with most of the loss due to high edge wear, a couple spots of light pinprick pitting on the left side barrel and a few tiny specks of oxidation staining. The ejector is the typical dark plum patina. It appears this pistol was originally stamped in error as #4638 with a deeper ''3'' then struck over the ''8'', indeed the checkered walnut grips are still stamped-numbered ''38'' and remain in very good plus condition the right panel showing a bit more wear overall with spots of moderately compressed and lightly chipped points. All of the markings are clear and all of the remaining serialized parts are matching including the grooved firing pin. Included with this pistol is one 122-coded ''(Eagle) / 37'' Haenel magazine showing some light operational wear, freckling and is numbered to the gun. This is a very nice early war pistol made even more desirable by its matching magazine. (138963-183) {C&R} [Tim Falvey Collection] (1200/1800) Sold For 1495.00
