1/9/18 - This is a M1935A manufactured by SACM (Societe Alsacienne Construction Mecanique) in Cholet, France. It is Nazi-marked E/WaA251 on the left side of the slide, making this the more common 2nd variation model of these pistols. Overall, they remain fairly scarce for German Army pistols of that time, with only about ~24,000 produced. The serial dates this one to the earlier end of the range, likely produced somewhere around 1942. The original finish is about 92-94%, with the majority of the wear found on the found strap. All original and correct with a strong bore.
