Hi, my name isXXXXX would be glad to help you any way that I can by answering your question to the best of my ability.
Deutsch Waffen Und Munitions (DWM); 1900 American Eagle - 4.75" barrel, 7.65mm caliber. The American Eagle crest is stamped over the chamber. The serial number range is between 2000-200,000, and there were approx. 11,000-12,000 commercial models marked "Germany" and 1000 military test models without the commercial import stamp. The serial numbers of this military lot have been estimated at between 6100-7100.
Grading - Exc.: $6000, Vgood: $4200, Good: $1500, Fair: $850
This was taken from the 2012 Standard Catalog of Firearms. (retail prices)

Note: The 1902 American Eagle is worth well over twice what the 1900 is worth, but the serial numbers fall between 22100-22300 and the 22450-22900 range. Sounds like somebody just paid too much for the wrong gun. They practically look identical except for the ser. #'s.
