4/6/20 - This is an original Mauser luger magazine made during WW2. The magazine has thinning to the blued finish throughout, and normal aging. There is no rust or pitting. The base appears to be polished and/or renumbered. See photos. There's evidence on the "ears" of the base of grinding. Also the numbering as well as the base itself has a polished look. However, the "i" letter block, "+" sign and eagle/63 proof appear to be original. The spring is strong and fully functional.
