    The Schwarzlose Pocket Model of 1908 will generally bring $350-$400 in nice condition. They were all serialized however, and the fact that you cannot readily see the serial number plus the apparent wear causing you to misread the slide legend (its GMBH you are seeing) leads me to believe that the condition is somewhat less than nice.

    Figure $250-$300.

    Hi Joer......welcome to TFF.

    Yep......the Doc has nailed it.

    BTW, that GMBH or GmbH roughly translates to "Company" from German.

    GmbH (Gesellschaft mit beschraenkter Haftung) is the equivalent to the english LTD. (Limited).

    Another useless chunk of knowledge :p
