The metal surfaces retain perhaps 99% original blue and the straw parts are showing a strong straw temper with only minor fading on the front sides of the trigger. There is also vibrant pale fire temper blue remaining on the magazine release spring, sear spring, breech block pin, rear connecting pin and grip screws. The toggle is marked with a 5-line Mauser banner, the chamber is marked with a Swiss Cross Sunburst and all of the visible numbered parts are matching including the grooved firing pin. There is an "(eagle)/N" proof mark on the left receiver, breech block and the front sight face. The checkered walnut grips rate excellent and they are correctly un-marked on their interior. Included is a single bright-bodied, aluminum-based magazine which rates about excellent with minor pitting and operational wear in the finish and it is also correctly un-marked. This actual serial number is shown in Table 25.05 in The Mauser Parabellum 1930-1946 (5000/7000) SOLD FOR $4,025.00
