    Hi All on this thread!
    I too have a PPK that my dad brought back from the Normandy Invasion.
    He said he got it from a dead german officer.
    It is blued/almost mint some/slight discolor on slide, bore is excellent has leather brown holster in good to very good cond, 2 magazines one with plastic? baseplate and has an eagle on both the slide and the ejector port and on the holster is engraved drgm.
    Overall everything is in great condition.
    Oh and the plastic? grips are a light brown with some darker black marbling.
    Any idea what this is worth or info or date?
    Thank you!
    Oh and the serial number has 6 digits and a "k". 3540xx k

    Sounds like it doesn't have any military acceptance markings, so that indicates it is a commercial variation. That does reduce the value somewhat. Without seeing good clear photos we can't judge the condition from your description. Depending on the actual condition of the pistol and holster, the best appraisal that we can give is somewhere between $800 and $1500, until we see some pics.

    wonderwhippet,
    I know that I may be getting picky here, but I don't think that you intended to say things quite the way that they came out in your last post of this thread. For the sake of new collectors, there are many more varieties and values associated with PP/PPKs than just military acceptance marked and all others not military marked being commercial and of lower value as stated.

    For me, that is why PP/PPKs are more fascinating than any other firearms. The list of other rare markings and associated higher values is extremely long.

    Some of them are:
    R.F.V.
    RBD Muenster
    R.R.Z.
    Tyrolean
    R.J.
    RZM
    SA Group
    SA Group Alpenland
    SA Group Thueringen
    SA Feldherrnhalle
    SA Standarte
    NSKK
    Statens Vattenfallsverk
    RPLT
    Persian
    SS RZM Muzzle Marked
    SS Non RZM Muzzle Marked
    SS SS K Suffix Muzzle Marked
    SS K Under Serial Number
    SS K Suffix w/ spine marked mag
    SS K Suffix w/Baseplate marked Mag

    There are more, but this gives an idea of what is out there, many undiscovered and of varying rarity and value. None of the above are military acceptance marked or unmarked commercial.

    I fully agree, but if the eagle marking is all he can come up with located on the slide and ejector port, he has undoubtedly described a commercial variety of the PPK. I have a bunch not on your list, such as the muzzle numbered SS issue, the DRP (postal) issue, and the Luftwaffe contract.

    I have all six SS PPK issue variations on the list (there are an equal number of SS PP variations). Good catch on the DRP and the Luftwaffe, those are well known variations. I'm sure there are more, those were off the top of my head.
    Your request for photos is good of course. Many gun owners fail to notice a marking or neglect to mention it.

    I assume you're referring to RZM? Near the top of the list. Rare and the favorite of many.

    I'm sorry, I don't really understand. All RZM marked PPKs went to NSDAP members.
    I also do not understand the comment regarding a concentration camp name.
    Please forgive my ignorance.

    Aerotech, you seem to have a police issue PPK in at least reasonable condition from what I can tell from the dark photos. As far as value goes, until we know more, let's say value is $1500 as a starting point, possibly much more..
