Good Morning all,
I was recently given a Mauser P14 pistol that has some unusual markings. It has the standard markings overall but the left side of the frame is marked with symbols I have never seen. The pistol grip is well made and inlaid with silver and mother of pearl. Can anyone tell me what I have. Thanks Everyone

    Very interesting. I'm thinking its Carl Weber's pistol. There were members of the SS in 1923 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_SS_personnel

    Leutnant zur See is a Reichsmarine/Kriegsmarine rank.

    cut and pasted

    The Reichsmarine (English: Navy of the Realm) was the name of the German Navy during the Weimar Republic and first two years of Nazi Germany.[1] It was the naval branch of the Reichswehr, existing from 1919 to 1935. In 1935, it became known as the Kriegsmarine, a branch of the Wehrmacht; a change implemented by Adolf Hitler

    Slide 7/10 Those look like signal flags to me.

    Hopefully you can trace the ownership history of this pistol, (Provenance)? To establish if the markings and grips are original.

    I'm saying this because the faking of German firearms has gone on for many years. A plain, common, Mauser Model 1914 pistol. That isn't worth a great deal. Could have pantagraph markings and fancy grips added, to increase it's value 10 fold.

    If none of our members are able to help with identification and valuation? You might consider contacting folks in the forum below.

    Here is an interesting link. I wonder if this is the same Carl Weber? You may have to cut and paste the entire link to get it to work.
