From Italy is older type, 1952-1968 I believe. Exact year can be found on beretta website...

Mine was made after 1968 with the thumb safety in US. Very nice gun, awesome and reliable little 25!

Value, not really sure. I paid 300 for mine couple months ago. Yours lacks thumb safety which seems to be more popular as does the fact it was made in Italy plant, not US. Depends on condition too.

The Italian made models are worth more than the Americans. The American models go anywhere from $150 used to $300 new. The Italians usually start around $400 and go up but that's considering the gun is in 90% condition and up. Having box, papers and spare mag raises that considerably regardless of condition but that's usually what's missing when people come across them in closets and drawers.

I have a 950c made in Italy. It is chambered for 22 short.. The Italian made versions were banned from importing with the 1968 US gun law changes so beretta started making them in the US.
