I'm looking for a value on a 32 caliber semi-auto Mauser pistol in it's original leather shoulder holster. Thank you.
Do you know the model number of your gun? Most of the early Mauser pistols were made in 7.65 (32). If you do not know the model you can attach a picture using the paperclip icon on the toolbar. What marking are on the frame and slide?
model HSc. barrel does show Kal 7,65 mm. serial#811063. There are diagonal markings on the barrel & grip in checkered. still need a photo?
I do not need a picture. The Mauser HSC is a semi-auto pistol chambered for the 7.65mm or 9mm short cartridges.
There are a couple of different versions of the HSC. The first is a low grip screw model. The grip screws are at the bottom edge of the grips. There were 2000 of these produced.
The second is the early commercial model which has a highly polished blue finish and checkered walnut grips. It will have the eagle over "N" proofmark and the floorplate of the magazine is stamped with the Mauser banner.
There is a Transition model which has a duller finish than the early commercial model. The rest is the same.
WWII production guns will have military acceptance stamps. They are Wa135, Wa655 or an Eagle over an "L" or "M"
Post war production did not start until 1960 when Mauser resumed making the HSC in 7.65 and 9mm short (380).
The values for most are very close with the exception of the Navy marked guns (Eagle over "M") and the low grip screw version. Look on the trigger guard for acceptance stamps. They may be in other areas, but most were on the guard. The values are:
excellent-$650, very good-$500, good-$350, fair-$175, poor-$125.
I hope this helps you,
