The same dealer bought a 1913 Sauer with Imperial German proof from the only shop in my little town.  The shop owner is a friend and dedicated collector.


The Sauer appeared on pre98 as a "fascinating well documented history ...bringback from a Jewish vet in the original holster".


There was no vet, Jewish or otherwise, and the pistol had no holster.
A name was was even given for the GI, and 4 accompanying "letter of authentication".


100% made up story.  Pure fraud.  Generated $1000 bucks over the gun only sale price by my local shop.

Unfortunately It does have condition issues which impacts value. Also if you look at the front sight it looks to me that the tip of the sight has been ground or filed down which also hurts. With that in mind I think it's worth more in parts than a complete pistol. Sorry for the bad news but that's how I see it.

I would agree. I would value a Imperial 1914 with the TGE in the $500-700 range if in very good to excellent condition. It is important to know that war time finishes are usually not of the same quality as earlier or later production. So an Imperial 1914's finish should not be compared the same way as other examples. Both of pardt's examples have very nice finishes from what I can see. He was also fortunate to have noticed the Eagle and knew what it was when the seller and other buyers did not.

Pretty much to get a decent deal on one those it has to be advertised as a plain 1914. That's how I got both of mine. Almost bought a third but a couple of other pistols had depleted my gun fund

I saw that. More than double what I just paid for my Police 1914. Crazy
