*OUTSTANDING SA PRESENTATION WALTHER MODEL PPK WITH SA MARKED PRESENTATION HOLSTER.

SN 863364. Cal. 32. 3.3″ bbl. Profusely and elaborately engraved in an acorn and oak leaf motif. Walther Banner with traditional Walther markings on left hand of slide, including Mod. PPK. “RZM” marking forward of safety, with outstanding “L” over “V” engraved over “1936” with the Germans “SA” emblem on front strap. Fully gold-plated. This firearm has been attributed by its previous owner as having belonged to General Victor Lutz, who was appointed General in charge of the SA by Adolf Hitler in 1936. This is one of the most elaborately engraved and embellished Walther PPK’s that has been offered. Eagle N proofs are found on slide, chamber and bbl. 90 degree safety with the sub-assembly number “3” found under the grips on left side of grip frame. White Walther Banner checkered grips with German eagle holding swastika is inset in a pre-cast mortise on right side of grip. Thumb magazine release with loaded chamber indicator. Magazine is engraved in matching ornamentation and is fully gold-plated as well. Pistol resides in a russet brown flap holster with the pre-war German “SA” monogram on flap with maker’s name and date of “OBERHOFF CIE” OVER “LUDEN SCHEID 1939” over a Rampant Colt. This is an exceptionally rare presentation rig. CONDITION: Very good overall, with approximately 15% of the fragile gold finish having flecked from its high points of engraving and embellishment. This fragile finish rarely held up. Bore is bright with strong rifling. Mechanics need attention as gun fails to stay open on empty magazine and 90 degree safety only engages to the 60 degree position. Grips are very unusual, in very fine overall condition with light staining and several very small age cracks at screw slot and top of grip strap. 52700-12 TDW (25,000-45,000) C&R – Lot 2025

*HISTORIC NSDAP ENGRAVED CASED PRESENTATION WALTHER PPK PISTOL.

SN 210985K. Cal. 32. 3.3″ bbl. Exquisitely engraved in the Germanic oak leaf and acorn motif. Executed to the highest degree of ability and detail with gold-plated finish overall with 1-pc mottled brown Walther grips with matching engraved and gold-plated escutcheons. A presentation plaque has been precisely inletted and pinned into the grips. The presentation is to “OTTO MARRENBACH zum 27 July 1942 H. Simon”. Otto Marrenbach born July 27 1899, had worked in the Steel Industry in upper management positions from 1921-1928. From 19296-1933, he was the director of the National/Socialistic daily newspaper. He joined the NSDAP in 1928, member no. 100 361. From 1933-1936, he worked as the manager of the NSDAP Employment Branch and German Work Front. This presentation pistol was presented by Heinrich Simon who became the assistant to the Reichsinspektor of the NSDAP in 1932 and later a member of the Reichstag. This historic presentation Walther is housed in its red Walther factory presentation box containing three Geco marked functioning cartridges and 1-pc wiping rod. Rarely is the opportunity to acquire a factory engraved gold-finished presentation Walther to a senior member of the NSDAP. CONDITION: Very fine condition, with slight thinning of gold finish on left side of slide and leading edges of rear grip strap, magazine base and high points of sights. Front of trigger has finish loss from handling, however, breechface retains most gold finish. It is doubtful this firearm was ever used very much and that most wear is from handling this elegant presentation. Bore is bright and shiny. Mechanics are crisp. Case has slight exterior distress. Interior lining is slightly soiled from age and bottom has indiscernible inscription. 52700-6 TDW (25,000-35,000) C&R – Lot 2026

*PRISTINE PRE-WAR ENGRAVED WALTHER MODEL PPK PISTOL.

SN 784403. Cal. 32. 3.3″ bbl. Richly engraved in foliate and arabesque scroll with 90 degree safety and traditional Walther Banner address and mod. PPK marking. Mounted with 2-pc ebony checkered deluxe grips with inleaded silver Walther Banners, both right and left sides that are pinned with silver pins. Two small ivory tabs on the interior of the grips are pinned in place to keep grips rigid. Embellishment amounts to full coverage inclusive of magazine base. Crown N proofs found on bbl and chamber with no other assembly or sub-assembly numbers found. Silver finish is throughout all interior of gun itself as well as magazine with exception of spring and follower and small internal parts. This late pre-war Walther PPK is masterfully engraved far beyond most other exhibition quality Walthers. CONDITION: Extremely fine with most all silver remaining and probably unfired as there is no evidence of finish loss on breechface, only the smallest amount of silver finish is lost from leading edges of magazine, from insertion and removal and slight finish loss on slide, bbl and frame on bearing surfaces from apparent hand operation. Ebony grips are equally very fine with evidence of a much earlier repair on inside top of left grip to remedy the loss of a very small sliver of wood which is virtually indiscernible when grips are mounted in place. A very small piece of ebony is missing at the top rear of the left grip. Bore is bright and sharp. Chamber actually retains most silver finish to substantiate the earlier statement about its lack of use. Mechanics are crisp. A finer example of a silver-plated Walther would be very difficult to find. 52700-3 TDW (15,000-20,000) C&R – Lot 2027

*HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT ENGRAVED WALTHER PPK IDENTIFIED TO SS GRUPPENFUHRER OTTO MULLER FORMER COMMANDANT OF AUSCHWITZ.

SN 410037K. Cal .32. 3.31″ bbl. Master engraved in the Germanic oak leaf with stippled background motif. Traditionally Walther banner and factory nomenclature with mod. PPK on left hand side. 60 degree safety with eagle / N proofs found on receiver, bbl, and slide. Silver plated over what amounts to full coverage embellishment with presentation banner on left slide crown “SS Gruppenfuhrer Otto Muller”. 1-pc Walther black hard plastic grips with additional marking on front strap of “O.684 / Schuabach”. With silver plated Walther banner mag with black plastic finger rest. Otto Muller’s torrid and controversial history in the German SS and his activities and involvement as Commandant of Auschwitz, the most infamous of all the concentration camps in Germany. Walther typically had these presentation or exhibition engraved guns embellished by outsourced or contract engravers. No two are found alike, however, finding a relatively late production example such as this is a great rarity. CONDITION: Extremely fine, with virtually all silver plate finish remaining, having tarnished to a somewhat mellow dull gray with darker tarnish in the depths of the dot-punch background. Slight thinning is evident at front right of slide, from possible holster carry, as well as thinning of finish on trigger and front strap. Grips remain excellent with slight shrinkage and appropriate warpage as all period Walther PPK grips should have. Bore is bright and shiny with sharp rifling. Mechanics are crisp. This extremely historic Walther remains in its prime condition. All visible numbers are matching. 52700-26 TDW (25,000-35,000) C&R – Lot 2028

Left side of slide is without typical Walther Banner and factory legend, however, is engraved in script “Kreistag Bad Reichenhall der NSDAP. 1937 Dem Seiger” with a facsimile of Adolph Wagner’s signature above an inscription “GAULEITER des TRADITIONSGAUES”. Adolph Wagner, a very famous and early high ranking member of the Nazi party and a close friend and confidante of Adolf Hitler himself, in 1929 was appointed Gauleiter of Munich and Bavaria (top Nazi). Being a close friend and confidante of Adolf Hitler, he spenty much time at Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest in Bavaria, even being filmed by Eva Braun showing him with Hitler himself. Receiving Germany’s highest award The Order of Germany posthumously by the Führer himself at his lavish funeral in 1944 CONDITION: Extremely fine with only the slightest of finish loss on forward left corner of muzzle from apparent holster use as well as a minuscule area of finish loss on the front right side of trigger guard. Bore is bright with sharp rifling. Mechanics are crisp. Mottled brown Walther grips are equally as fine with minor warpage and finger rest magazine is equally fine. 52700-4 TDW (12,500-17,500) C&R – Lot 2029

*STUNNING ENGRAVED WALTHER PPK PISTOL WITH NSDAP EAGLE.

SN 291536K. Cal. 32. 3.3″ bbl, Eagle N proofs and 60 degree safety. Engraved in Walther’s scroll and foliate with dot punch background amounting to what appears to be full coverage. White synthetic Walther Banner grips with lanyard loop at base. Slide has what appears to be a silver or platinum NSDAP eagle on right side forward of ejection port. These profusely engraved pistols were favorites of ranking Labor Party members who carried them extensively both prior to and during the WWII conflict. The unusual feature of having the Party eagle emblazoned on these pistols is a great rarity. Gun is accompanied by a standard late war white stitch brown leather holster marked “PPK” on flap with no inspection or makers marks to be found. CONDITION: Very fine, with slight finish loss at leading edges of slide and high points of sights. Bore is bright with sharp rifling. Mechanics are fine. White Walther synthetic grips have suffered some material loss at top left rear of grip with evidence of several repairs at top of backstrap. Appropriate black finger rest Walther magazine has evidence of slight corrosion at top of rear. Extremely rare engraved wartime Walther. 52700-37 TDW (8,000-12,000) C&R – Lot 2031

*SUPERB NSDAP PRESENTATION ENGRAVED WALTHER PPK PISTOL.

SN 1005987. Cal. 32. 3.3″ bbl, Crown N proofs, mottled brown Walther Banner 1-pc grips. 60 degree safety with oak leaf motif engraving amounting to full coverage with presentation in banner on top left of slide (NSDAP für Treue Thüring). Made without loaded chamber indicator and base of magazine engraved to match. The German National Labor Party or NSDAP took power in 1933. They enjoyed their pomp and ceremony and frequently bestowed upon themselves and fellow members these elegantly embellished sidearms. The influence of party leaders can be seen by being able to have produced this elaborately engraved pistol at a relatively late period when all productions had been steered toward war material. Survival of these was relatively small. CONDITION: Very fine overall with most finish remaining with typical edge wear and finish at high points of safety and forward end of slide. Grips are exceptional with minor age warpage. Bore is bright and sharp. Mechanics are crisp. 52700-1 TDW (8,000-12,000) C&R – Lot 2032

*OUTSTANDING RELIEF ENGRAVED PRESENTATION WALTHER PPK PISTOL WITH CASE.

SN 276416K. Cal. 32. 3.3″ bbl. Blue finish overall profusely engraved in Walther’s acorn and oak leaf scrolls amounting to full coverage. Eagle N proofed with 1-pc mottled brown Walther grips. Inclusive to the engraving is a crest on front strap with a stylized “S” over “W”. 60 degree safety with traditional Walther Banner and nomenclature of left side of slide. A small “020” is found under grips of bottom left of frame, undoubtedly a special assembly number. Walther engraved more side arms during the WWII conflict than any other manufacturer. Their artistry and presentation have always been noted as being the finest. This example would be at the top of its field for embellishment and condition. Additional research truly needs to be done as to whom the “SW” crest would be identified to. Gun is cased in a contemporary velvet and satin lined blue Walther display case. CONDITION: Extremely fine, with a very minimal amount of finish loss at leading edges of muzzle and on right side of frame behind trigger. Bore is bright and shiny. Mechanics are crisp. Walther grips are very fine with very minor warpage. Finger rest magazine equally fine with no issues. 52700-10 TDW (6,000-10,000) C&R – Lot 2033

SN 531. Cal. 7.65. 4-3/4″ bbl. Rich rust blue finish with straw finished trigger, safety, and takedown latch. 2-pc finely checkered walnut grips with grip safety. Crown / B and Crown / U proofs on bbl and receiver. Elegantly gold inlaid in a Gothic T / H that appears to have been during the period. Cased in a fitted velvet and leather hinged presentation case. Accompanied by two early Swiss pattern mags. This elegant commercial 1902 Luger is truly a rarity with its gold embellishment. CONDITION: Extremely fine with virtually all of its blue finish remaining with only the slightest trace of edge wear at muzzle and high points of sight. Bore is bright with sharp rifling. Mechanics are crisp. Grips are equally fine with no damage or distress at high points. Mags both have very slight wear from being inserted into mag well. After detailed disassembly all numbers were found to be matching. Case is very fine with slight staining on interior from oil and storage of firearm, hinge and clasp are functional and intact. 52700-27 TDW (5,000-7,000) C&R – Lot 2047

*PRIME DWM MODEL 1900 PROTOTYPE CALIBER 7.65.

SN 10050 B. Cal. 7.65. 4-3/4″ bbl. Rust blue finish overall. 2-pc checkered walnut grips, with straw finished trigger, lever, and takedown latch. This unusual example exhibits a “B” suffix at SN and is made without and traditional proof marks. These rare prototype examples are believed to have been manufactured for ballistic testing and for tool room use and never for sale. Examples have been observed in both 9mm and the 7.65 cartridge. Careful inspection has revealed matching numbers and several assembly markings but no proofs of any sort have been found, with exception of wood base mag that has an unknown marking. CONDITION: Very fine overall with most rust blue finish remaining, with typical edge wear at high points at sight, leading edges at trigger guard and slight muzzle wear. Bore is good, however, somewhat frosted. Grips are excellent with sharp checkering. All visible numbers found to be matching, other than unnumbered mag. Straw finish remains strong with slight staining on trigger and thinning straw on trigger face and mid region of safety. 52700-21 TDW (4,500-6,500) C&R – Lot 2048

*FANTASTIC, WELL DOCUMENTED KRIEGHOFF LUGER, DATED 1943, FULL MATCHING RIG.

SN 11543. Cal. 9mmP. Krieghoff only made about 300 1943 dated Lugers in the serial range 11,300-11,800. This particular example is well documented, a known gun for many years, listed by serial number in The Krieghoff Parabellum text by Gibson on page 74. As true for all Kriehoffs, it has a 4″ bbl having a drift adjustable front sight and fixed rear sight. The full serial number appears on the left side of the receiver and is repeated in small digits under the bbl and again on the forward frame. The middle toggle link is marked with the usual HK logo over “KRIEGHOFF SUHL”. Disassembly shows all matching serial numbers except for unnumbered black grips. Each of the two magazines has its blued body marked “122/Eagle 37”, an aluminum base marked with the correct “E/2” mark above the full serial number, and minor disturbance of each retaining pin. The original takedown tool is correctly E/2 marked. The rig comes in an original and very scarce black holster whose inner surface is marked “HEGER & LINDE/SCHMALKALDEN/1937”, adjacent to the usual Eagle/2 acceptance, with blackened stitching. CONDITION: At least 98% bright original salt blue with several component having different tones, particularly the darker sideplate and the thumbprint on the rear frame, as typical for Krieghoff Lugers. The polishing over the chamber is perpendicular to the bore axis rather than parallel, exactly as pictured in Gibson’s book on page 183, lending further credence to originality. Negligible fading of front and back straps. Same immaculate condition applies to the strawed/ heat treated parts, grips, and takedown tool. Although the base of one of the matching magazines is slightly brighter, the numeral fonts are identical. Holster has been polished but presents very nicely with no suggestion of repair. A beautiful looking and fully matched 1943-dated Krieghoff Rig, sure to please the advanced collector. 52527-7 (7,500-10,000) C&R – Lot 2049

*SCARCE KRIEGHOFF LUGER, DATED 1942, FULL MATCHING RIG.

SN 11679. Cal. 9mmP. Krieghoff only made about 300 1942 dated Lugers in the serial range 11,100-11,300 and 11,500-12,000. This particular example is well documented, a known gun for many years, listed by serial number in The Krieghoff Parabellum text by Gibson on page 72. One of its magazine bases is pictured on page 57. As true for all the military Krieghoffs, this example has a 4″ bbl having a drift adjustable front sight and a fixed rear sight. The full serial number appears on the left side of the receiver and is repeated in small digits under the bbl and again on the forward frame. The middle toggle link is marked with the usual HK logo over “KRIEGHOFF SUHL”. Disassembly shows all matching serial numbers except for unnumbered black grips. Each of the two matching magazines has its blued body marked “122/Eagle 37” and an aluminum base marked with the correct “E/2” mark above the full serial number. Close comparison of the magazine bases shows minor differences in the “6” and “9”. There is no takedown tool. The rig comes in an original black holster whose inner surface is unmarked except for the Eagle/2 acceptance. CONDITION: Excellent original condition with bbl extension a slightly darker hue than usual over surface etching, consistent with poor part preparation and normal variation seen in the late-date Krieghoffs. Negligible fading of front and back straps. Enhanced strawed parts now in the same condition as the balance of pistol. Excellent original grips with only minimal loses. Near mirror bore. Perfect manual mechanics. Near excellent holster, polished but presents well, with no suggestion of repair. An extremely nice, very well documented 1942 Krieghoff Luger rig with two matching mags and correct holster, known for many years and difficult to find under any circumstance. 52527-6 (7,500-10,000) C&R – Lot 2050

*SUPERB KRIEGHOFF LUGER, DATED 1942, FULL MATCHING RIG.

SN 11839. Cal. 9mmP. Krieghoff only made about 300 1942 dated Lugers in the serial range 11,100-11,300 and 11,500-12,000. As true for all the military Krieghoffs, this example has a 4″ bbl with a drift adjustable front sight and a fixed rear sight. The full serial number appears on the left side of the receiver and is repeated in small digits under the bbl and again on the forward frame. The middle toggle link is marked with the usual HK logo over “KRIEGHOFF SUHL”. Major components salt blued. Strawed takedown lever, safety, ejector, trigger and magazine release button. Fire blued grip screws. Disassembly shows all matching serial numbers, except for the non-Krieghoff hold-open, missing tensioning spring and numbered “17”, and unnumbered black grips. Each of the two magazines has its blued body marked “122/Eagle 37” and an aluminum base, slightly polished, marked with the full serial number. Although both sets of numbers were struck with the same dies, only one of the two magazines is marked with the Eagle/2 acceptance, likely a factory oversight. The rig comes in an original and correct black holster whose inner surface is unmarked except for the large Eagle/2 and an original Krieghoff-accepted takedown tool. CONDITION: The pistol is in excellent condition with approximately 97-98% bright, original salt blue. Comparable condition small parts, grips, and takedown tool. Same condition applies to each of the magazines with arguably enhanced plugs. Near excellent holster with no discernible repairs. 52427-2 LMA (12,500-22,500) C&R – Lot 2051
