Re: High Standard clip
That is a model E type I-B which is the early version of that gun. The short barrel is less common than the long barrel version and teh type I-B is less common than the type II. This type I-B was probably made between May 1938 and August 1939. Value might be in the $950 to $1150 range.
No, this is not the Victor model which was not introduced until February 1971
