    Hello Gail. We need some images of your pistol. There were several models made by Mauser in 7.65 (.32acp) and they have different values depending upon condition, type, special markings, etc. etc.

    Good pictures for identification purposes. You have a Mauser model 1914 pistol in 7.65 caliber, which is the same as .32 ACP, a cartridge which you can buy in any gun store. Some of these were issued by the German government to various military personnel, but yours lacks military markings, so it is a commercial pistol which was purchased privately. It may have been owned by a civilian or it may have been purchased by a military officer, as many officers purchased their own pistols. This pistol has a value of about $325. It's not really collectible, but it makes a nice reliable housegun.
