This Luger has matching serial numbers (marked 770 and 70) and appears to be in superb condition. Any idea what it's worth?

The holster looks nice. Does it have markings on the back? does the clip match the serial #. is there an xtra clip and takedown tool in the holster? wHAT MARKS ON TOP OF THE CHAMBER, THERE ALSO MAY BE A # SUCH AS S42, DWM, BYF and maybe a # top of receiver behind barrel, indicates yr of manufacture. Look carefully for the little "waff" marks. Stylized eagle over a number. All this stuff means something. There are hundreds of variations of Lugers. much has been written about them. U could have a rarity or one that they banged out 10's of thousands. Have fun an good luck ib

Sorry...should have added that.

Clip serial number matches. Number "42" appears on top. Year appears to be 1940.

Thanks!

JR it wood seem U have a Mauser "code 42" made 39 an 40 many thousands made an frequently found. Thatdoes not detract if the gun is nice and original, not a reblue.
Current bluebook says 98% $1100, 95% $800 Marching mag should add $ 50-75. 2 matching mags $150 Holster add $125 if original an in average condition (nice leather brings nice $$ If it has NAVY markings (eagle over M ) add 100%. U can see that many things go into the pricing of lugars they are very popular with collectores here NJ Pa NY Am by far no xpert, best to get a QUALIFIED appraisal from someone U trust Condition is everything. Good luck.

ps, the blue book prices are just a guide. stuff can an does sell for higher or lower.
