10/1/19 - This is an exquisite and rare Party Leader Walther PPK rig. The gun is all original finish and near-mint, with just a hint of muzzle wear from the holster, and a couple tiny spots of finish loss on the left side of the slide. The serial dates it to 1939 and is in the correct range for the issuance of the Party Leader "Honor" Grip. The grip is excellent as well, with just a very minor and very common stress crack at the top of the spine of the grip. Nearly all PPK grips from that era will have tiny stress fractures and are to be expected if the grip is real.  Minty bore and finger extension magazine.  Rig includes a flat-bottom spare and an excellent, original Party Leader holster.  It has a few signs of age and wear but no major defects.  The rig can be separated should the customer wish, with $9500 as price on the pistol, and $2800 on the holster.

The Walther PPK with Party Leader Grips was the "Honor Weapon of the Political Leaders". The Hoheitsabzeichen or High Insignia is the Eagle over Swastika found on either side of the grips where the Walther banner is normally located. The person entitled to wear the honor weapons that were awarded them by the Fuhrer were the Political Leaders of the national, regional and district territories, as well as leaders of local and support units. The persons who wore the honor weapon had their authorizations listed in the district personnel offices, and had to have in their possession a weapons permit issued by the police, which was obtained through official channels. These rare pistols were estimated to number around 3,500, and are widely faked, but this one is guaranteed original.
