    Default FN-1935 with Waffenamt and "Trench Art"?

    Greetings! My first time to post here.

    I'm posting to get some knowledgeable opinions on this FN-1935 my father left me. I've had it for many years, and I fired it a number of times as a teenager. In addition to being marked with the Waffenamt, it has a crest on its grip that seems to tie it to the 27th SS "Langemarck" Div.

    I've posted for information in the gunbroker forums for input

    https://forums.gunbroker.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=504290

    and others have pointed out the marked resemblance between the crest on the grip and the 27th Langemarck "Logo".

    https://www.germanmilitaria.com/Waff...s/S016279.html

    Any thoughts? I think I'm going to sell it, but I'm not sure where to do that, or what it may be worth.

    No holster, the barrel is in poor shape and sadly, the clip does not seem to be original.

    Still a unique piece, I think.

    Posting additional pics.

    Thanks!

    Default No One?

    I had hoped I'd finally found a forum where the participants might have seen something like this before...

    Can't anyone offer any input?

    Thanks...

    Unfortunately we are primarily a rifle forum.

    My experience re most German pistols usually indicates they are less sought after than rifles. My experience with most German pistols puts them in the low hundreds.

    However, the Broom Handles are another creature, they are in the thousand dollar and higher realms. Several years ago I put some pictures of German Broom handles in the forum, and they remain there. There's about 8 or nine of them as I recall, particularly those still in their original cases, a rare item. Sepp44
