10/7/21 - This is an original H&R .32 Self Loading pistol that was manufactured in the early 1920s. It has maybe 75% of the high-polish blue remaining, with minor areas of bluing loss scattered throughout. Trigger still has some nice case hardening on it. This particular example features British proofs along the top of the slide and ejection port. H&R offered their remaining inventory of this model in 1939 and 1940 catalogs in response to the shortage of WWII handguns. Given the British proofs, it suggests maybe British wartime acceptance use as a "substitute standard" sidearm issued during the war. This one has excellent grips with no notable defects. Strong, shiny bore.
