It is a Beretta 9mm. The crown represents the Royal Arms. 1937 is around the time of the ww 2. A service pistol for the Italians.

While it is a 9mm it could be a 9mm short otherwise known as a 9mm Kurz and 380. The 9mm short/Kurz was very popular back then.

I called a collector/gunsmith. Maybe 500-600 euros if in good condition. A lot more if owned by say Mussolini. The guns are early to mid 1930s. Any way to verify some history? Beretta is the oldest gunmakers in Europe.

It is a .380 by US standards. It would have said 9 mm Luger otherwise. The gun also came in .32 in US standards.

That's a Beretta Model 1934. As said, Italian Army. Caliber 9mm Corto (short) aka the .380

Really bad ergonomics. Poor grip angle. Mag release on the bottom. Safety is a bear. It was never meant to carry with a round in the chamber. They also made it in 22lr.
