5/24/19 - This is a beautiful, all original example of a Star Model B with Nazi proof on the right side tang. It is all original and correct with about 97-98% high-polish blue remaining. There are minor scuffs and a couple thin scratches but no major areas of finish loss. The firm of Star Bonifacio Echeverria SA, located in Eibar, Spain, originated in 1905 but the factory was destroyed during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). It was rebuilt adjacent to the original site, and during WW2 it supplied about 25,000 pistols to the German Army in France. There are two serial ranges for these contracts, with this pistol falling correctly into the second batch and given an E/WaAD20 acceptance stamp. Only 15,000 were produced with this proof. The grips and magazine are all original and in very good to excellent condition. Excellent bore.
