Great Pistol and Heirloom from Dad!

I believe that is a picture of a Model 1935 Berretta Pistol. That was Berretta's Logo at the time. The Cal should be marked on the Side of the Slide if you can get some close ups of the Slide. If it is a 1935 it is in 32 ACP Cal. Ammunition or might be marked with 7.65 X 17mm., You would also confirm it being a 1935 by the Caliber,
The M1935 was purpose built and designed for the Italian armed forces; however, it was also sold to the civilian market and issued to the German forces in 1944 and 1945.
They are also to some a collector's piece today.
And as G66 advise it could also be a 1934 Model in 380 ACP and also could be listed as 9mm Kurtz, 9 X17mm or other, As I said the caliber will tell the Model year.

not sure. The slide is wiped clean, and has no etchings on either side except for the SN. Local gunsmith in town is closed. Will take it when it opens next week. Hopefully they can ID the caliber.
