    Sorry, I didn't mean to poke fun, only to note that the Berlin part of the story could not be true if the soldier was American.

    And it is true that the first thing I thought of when you said a building with lions was the NYPL. Of course, many buildings in Europe and the U.S. had that kind of decoration; it was an architectual fad in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

    It's all good. I point out glaring errors myself when I catch them. It's just a matter of not allowing un-truths to go unchecked. I appreciate the correction. I'll post the picture if I ever find it again.

    There are two ways to tell if it is a WWII Luger. It should be dated on the receiver, and usually there were "waffenamts," which were quality control stamps used during the war.
