WWII Walther PP - seeking good way to determine value
« on: July 27, 2021, 07:26:49 AM »
I have a friend looking to value her WWII Walther handgun.  She is considering selling it.  Photos are below. 

Based on this site, https://www.germandaggers.com/Gallery/GW.php it look like it is the:
Walther PP Dural Frame - produced 1942-1944
Caliber 7.65mm - 8 round magazine
Approximately 8,000 produced

However at this site, http://www.tague.at/pistolen/en_index.htm

The serial # (818840-I asked if it was OK to post the SN and was told no problem) seems to be more in line with the mid 30's.  However the Serial # is not in the range (1935 stops just short, but then it jumps way past her serial # for 1936), and the 1940's dates #'s are not even close.

The photos do not show an import mark that I can see.  could this be a GI take-home?  Any ideas on age?
