I think that is a pretty neat photo.  Thanks for doing that.

Too bad it wasn't a side view of the Frame Webs forward of the Trigger Guard.  That would show the actual color differences in the finish.  As I said before, you are comparing the front and rear Grip Straps where the most wear would occur from handling.

Mine sure looks like a military blued slide on an incomplete blued frame showing wear to both front and back straps.

None,  Just making observations.  I always enjoy your verification or observations to the contrary.  I think we all learn from your comments.  I know that I do.

Alan, do you think these February-production pieces were actually delivered, or were they in the plant when it was captured?

My "F" was taken by a US Army Corporal from New York from a city police officer in Schweinfurt, Germany.  He told me the story of his last days in the war and the capture history of this pistol.  He had to sell the gun as he was entering an assisted living facility and his family was not interested in getting it registered in New York State.  I have lived in New York.  That registration process is a little bit of a pain.  I am sure these "F"s were issued.

Very good, Jim.  I agree with your analysis.  March production probably did not make it to the field though.  That would include the last Police pistols 948790 and 949192.  The French occupied Mauser Werke on April 19th.

That is fascinating information ! Thank you Jim and Alan
Here's a piece of interesting trivia: Oberdorf am Nekar to Schweinfurt is about 267km
