A friend of mine--WWII, decorated bomber pilot and ex-commander of NORAD--brought a Luger home with him in '45 (that he got off of an SS trooper--don't want to get into the details).
He's in bad shape (94 years old) and wants to know how much this pistol is worth before he checks out).
It's a 9mm Luger with the date 1920 stamped on top (that's the only date). It has matching serial numbers on all parts (#3113), including the magazine. It comes with a holster with the name Robert Larsen, Belin 1935 stamped on the back. It also comes with a disassembly tool.
It's in perfect operating condition with only minor wear of the blueing.
Any idea of its value?

Get some pics to post. Condition will have a lot of impact on the value since they can go anywhere from $900-$15000 or even more.

The Robert Larsen marking has been seen on other leather goods of the same period, including rifle clip pouches. I have not located a code for the company.

The 1920 marking alone indicates the pistol was made in that year for the Reichswehr; those are uncommon and should value higher than a standard WWI or WWII pistol in the same condition. Again, good pictures are needed, especially both sides and top, and the bottom of the magazine.
