    Hi,
    I have the original box, instruction and test target for this pistol. S/n on box and target matches pistol.
    It has made in Germany stamped on the front of the left side and futher back has Carl Walters waftenfabrik ULM/DO and under that modell PPK/S cal 9mm Kutz.
    The barrel has 74 and some kind of marking after it that can be seen from the cutout on the slide.
    Serial number is 185XXX. Has Interarm stamp on the right side.
    It is either very nice nickle or stainless with a dark cherry wood grips.
    It has no wear marks or dings and the barrel has defined groves.
    Thanks,
    Gary

    Your Walther was made in 1974. The finish is not original, and the grips are replacements. Walther did produce a few hundred pistols in electroless nickel plate, but these had a dull satin finish, not shiny and polished like yours.

    If it was NIB, it could be worth $650 or so. In it's present condition, about $350. These are real time gun show prices, not Blue Book values.
