Re: PPK W Variant
After Walther reached 1010000, the company decided to go back & start the serial numbers back at 172000K. The W was in the sn# range of 185400 -195100.Guessing, but not sure, 8,700 units had the W suffix & then after the W stopped, K was used to wars end.,. Though sought after by collectors, the price mentioned is no way true. In the condition of your husband's firearm, 800 dollars would be a fair estimate. Of course in 95% the pistol would bring more. Hope this helps?
Note: The capture papers will add several hundred to the price.
THE GUN HAS PLAYED A CRITICAL ROLE IN HISTORY. AN INVENTION WHICH HAS BEEN PRAISED & DENOUNCED...SERVED HERO & VILLAIN ALIKE...AND CARRIES WITH IT MORAL RESPONSIBILITY...TO UNDERSTAND THE GUN IS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HISTORY.
