Here is a picture from a recent closed auction on Hermann Historica of HSc s/n 777349
with "Swiss" metal finger extension magazine and black bakelite grips. Condition not great.

Good eye ! But I guess I didn't see that one .... however, I do see two others that haven't yet sold.

Nothing wrong with Bakelite grips, but plastic? likely agree with you there. But, why don't you post some pictures for the experts to see what's going on with your pistol, and inside of grips, to enable them to give you some decent information? [please]

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your fine pistol. I'm sure there are others on this board as curious as I to see a few pictures ..... that way you will have some information from the resident experts

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

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

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

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

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" ?

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.

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.
