SN 934386. Cal. 9mm Kurtz. 3.85″ bbl. Deep rich factory blue finish with 2-pc Walther banner hard plastic grips. 60 degree safety with crown “N” proofs evident on slide and chamber. Very little is known about the rare Turkish Contract. Similar to the Persian Contract in the fact that it uses a bottom heel magazine release and utilizes its own proprietary magazine with milled follower and no provision for thumb release. Right side of slide is marked with star encompassed by crescent moon of the Republic of Turkey with a “TC” indicating Turkiye Cumhuryet (Turkish Republic) as well as Subaylara mahsunstur (Officer’s pistol). The extreme scarcity of these pistols is due to the fact that these guns were not to be sold after issue to Turkish officers. This example is documented as having been a gift to well-known Walther collector, Lewis Copeland and is documented by a 1962 dated letter to another well-known Walther collector Sid Abramen. Truly the rarest of rare in Walther collectibles. CONDITION: Extremely fine with very slight finish loss at leading edges of muzzle, high points of sights, and very slight thinning of finish on grip straps. Mechanics are crisp. Bore is bright and shiny. Unique proprietary magazine is equally fine. 52700-2 TDW (7,500-10,000) C&R – Lot 2022
