3/1/18 - This is an all original Mauser C96, also known as a Red 9.  The finish rates at about 98+%, with almost no visible wear, but there is patina throughout.  Grips are matching to the gun, and have the number 9 cut into them, and filled with red paint.  This was done to distinguish between the M1896/16 and the M1896/12.  It also denotes that the pistol was chambered in 9mm.  Because the added red 9 was accomplished by various regimental armorers in the field during war time, it varies in size, color and quality.   Minty bore.
