2/22/21 - This is an original WW2 variation P.38 magazine. The left side of the frame is stamped "P.38v". The spine is stamped with "E/359" upside down near the top. There is also a serial number "17056" etched into the spine near the bottom. The spring is excellent and fully functional. The original blued finish has minimal wear with no pitting or corrosion.
