3/23/18 - This is the nicest late-war Model 1935 Beretta I have ever seen - worthy of my own collection, but I can't keep all the good stuff for myself. It is dated 1944 and 4UT marked which was a Nazi inspector proof. The high-polish finish makes it quite rare. The Italians maintained the high polish finish but when the Nazis took over after the fall of Mussolini, the Germans degraded the finish to a cheaper military dull blue. So this one had to be in the factory completed - all but the final inspection proof when the Nazis took over. A very rare and beautiful Nazi pistol. Excellent bore and magazine. Seemingly never issued or used.
