    I would post this on the p38 forum. They have a section for WW-II PP & PPK's.
    Dieter Marshall is a member and frequents the forum.
    The 'capture papers' are interesting and in most circles add value to the pistol.
    The pistol might have been a private purchase and the purchaser may have become a Party Leader after the purchase. Who knows?
    The date of manufacture 1935 seems right.
    I wouldn't begin to speculate the value, but it would probably be $1000+.
    I had a 1939 PPK that I gifted to my Daughter (her Pap brought back from WW-II w/capture papers) conservatively valued @ $1500.
    Sentimental value priceless.

    I would think it entirely possible that the original owner could have installed later fancier grips for whatever personal reason.

    So many posts, I read many at random. If I am repeating what someone else said, apologies.
    Black "Party Leader" grips are not common. In 1999 there were nine known of the like. Genuine ones in Exc condition add about $5,000 to the value of the pistol. Black Party Leader grips are rare. Due to the Black PL grips and "k" suffix serial # , years of looking into made it one of nine known. Sold it for 6k, shoulda got 10. Better, I shoulda kept it.

    To be sure go to the P38 forum. They have a section on PPK & PP pistols.
    The capture documents are interesting. Don't lose them. They are part of history.

    The original poster has make 7 posts to the forum, all in this thread. The last one was right at three years ago. I don't think he will be back to read any new posts!
