Consecutive Police E/F HSc Mausers Reunited
« on: September 02, 2017, 12:23:05 PM »
By pure luck I was fortunate to locate and acquire the sibling to an HSc already in my collection.

Any/all comments are welcome.

Warbird, do you know what date these were produced (please)?

Your Late Wartime HSc's were produced in February 1945.  My notes have 947177 with a purple tinted Frame which implies an incomplete or incorrect bluing process.  Overall, though, a unique acquisition for your collection.  Congratulations!

Jim and Alan, thank you very much. Alan, if 947117 has a bluing issue, then so too does 947176. Might you have a picture of an example of a purple tinted HSc frame you would share? I'd be pleased to take/post "revealing" pictures of this pair if I know what to look for/capture in the image. I'd merely compare these with another late war blued example if I had one, but I've only got phosphate.

I don't have any purple examples in my archive, Doug.

Thank you Gerben.
 
Alan, I am not seeing a purple tinted frame, but definitely the frame has a thinner/lighter bluing than the slide - notice the "dual-tone" effect in picture below.
 
Do these electro-pencil sevens ("7") look atypical to anyone else but me? I have no other example to compare them with.

Your photo is comparing the area with the most worn finish on the pistol, i.e., the rear Grip Strap.  Try it with the Frame Web forward of the Trigger Guard.

The numbers on the Barrel are stamped and not electro-penciled.  The sevens look fine to me, Doug.  Think about the times these HSc's were created in.  WWII was about to end and everyone at the Mauser factory would know it.  Over 5,000 were slave laborers who would be thinking about returning home and not the quality of their work.

Warbird, your point about slave laborers leads me to wonder whether the "squiggly-line sevens" may not in fact be typical of German handwriting but rather of some other nationality. Note in this picture how the "squiggly-line sevens" in "177" and "176" are much different than the "straight-line seven" in 127 (posted by "Roger" in another forum).
Anyone have any insights about this style handwriting of the number "7" ?

I have 947183.  It has what I call a light finish.

Jim, only 5 serial numbers between our HSc's ............. thanks for reporting that
 
I'd love to see pictures of your's for comparison, especially the color of your frame and slide and also the handwritten number etched at the muzzle end of the slide

Jim, thanks very much for posting those pictures. Your pistol is in really nice shape - it's seems to have survived better than mine


It would be great fun to see the three of these "up close" in hand, but at least for now here is a photo-shopped picture of these three amigos
