This is how you want to find your .32 ACP rounds.

Carefully stored by its owner in a 1930s Mauser labeled ribbon box. The box originally contained a typewriter type ribbon used in the Mauser calculation machines, produced during the 1930s.

 The cartridges are made by DWM, the brass case ones were made at the DWM Karlsruhe branch, the steel cased cartridges were made by DWM in Berlin.

 The HSc pistol that came with it is still in Germany, awaiting import papers. The 1944 pistol was refurbished by a former Mauser employee for personal use and has the rare finger extension magazine with it.

The brass cased rounds have nickle plated bullets. Those on the steel cases are copper washed.

Here is a box of brass cased DWM 7,65 from the same era. This box and its contents were also produced in DWM's Berlin-Borsigwalde plant. Copper washed bullets.
Headstamp DWM B B 479A

This is the pistol that came with the bullets :)
It is a war time HSc, carefully refurbished and reblued in the typical 1970s Mauser blue used on the Mauser Parabellum and post war Mauser HSc pistols (Brunofix - Brunox). The grips are modified post war grips that have been stained and polished to a much higher lustre than the standard post war grips. A bonus is the original metal fingertip extension on the WW2 magazine.
The pistol came directly from Oberndorf and was in the possession of a Mauser worker who apperantly took considerable pride in restoring this pistol for his personal use as a hunting side arm.
