11/8/17 - This is an original WW1 Luger magazine. The magazine has a beautiful frame with light yellowing due to age. There is no rust or pitting. The wood base has some minor chew marks and flaws throughout - as shown in photos. The magazine appears to be marked "1" over "780" with an imperial proof at the base. Either side or "ear" of the wood bottom is marked with a "2". Guaranteed original and fully functional.
