2/5/20 - This is a rare DWM model 1900 Luger rig with American Eagle crest on the chamber. This is the first production model of this variation, made in or around 1900 with early dish toggle. The serial of this pistol falls just outside the bannerman range for the Test Eagle Lugers, though it is of note that this pistol does not have a GERMANY export marking. These pistols went to the US retail market and the manufacturers at DWM realized that nation-based crests increased sales of these lugers, so that is why you find the American Eagle over the chamber. This pistol is in excellent, original condition with about 97% blue remaining. There is minor edge wear from the holster, and minor finish loss on the front strap. All matching numbers on the pistol with two correct blank-bottom wood magazines. This pistol features the scarce and desirable Ideal grips, with metal inserts. They are in very good condition with no major flaws. The pistol comes in a very nice and original commercial holster from the era, which has a Frieberg maker mark on the front. Nice, shiny bore.
