Nice!!! Looks great, amigo. How's the bore?

I knew a guy many years ago who had inherited one that was absolutely mint. He kept it dropped in a cotton sock, in his sock drawer. Not a gun guy at all, but he had fired it. I wanted it bad, and he knew it.

I don't know much about them at all, but that one seems to be in excellent condition.

Here's an interesting site that may give you some information: Lugers - Simpson Ltd. - Collectors Firearms

DWM engraved the American Eagle on Lugers to increase USA sales, and it was great marketing. American Eagle Lugers are extremely collectable and increase in value per annum faster than the stock market. It looks like someone at some point replaced your front sight. This does effect the value a little but it was common practise with a lot of shooters of these fine pistols.

yes they are very collectable,but I had to give the gun back,the extractor's serial did not match,even with the mismatched extractor the gun still has a good collectors value, ($2500) , when I purchase a gun all serials must match
