I don't like the style and placement of the serial number. Nor the wear marks in that area.


Could be signs of someone messing with the serial number.

I've got an Army proof marked HSc with the serial number 715037, are you able to tell when in 1941 that dates to?

Hey all, new to the forum. Glad you all are here. 2 Questions about an HSc I inherited from my Dad, who passed. 1) Verify that this HSc manufacture year was 1942...any more details here? and 2) are these worth anything to collectors (I am not, and looking for my options, if any?  Thanks!

You have an army accepted HSc, collectable indeed.
What is the serial number?

That would make it a late 1942 example.


The number should be placed at the front bottom of the grip.
Sadly this interesting serial placement will hurt the value.

Hi everyone!
I'm new here, but I've ordered a piece of Mauser HSc, which serial number is 867360. According to the chart from J.Still the year of production is 1943. On the left side on the trigger guard probably is Eagle with "N" or "M"- it's not so visible beacuse of bad quality photos. You can check them below. Appreciate to know the exact time of production and if it is commercial, military or police.

EDIT
I've got this piece now with me. This pistol has 3 strips under "Mauser-Werke A.G. Oberndorf a.N.". Right on trigger guard is visible The Eagle with "N" under it, right on slide is also The Eagle with "N" under. On left side there is no acceptance mark. I've checked many forums and still don't know that this one is a commercial, police or military.

Yours is a commercial example.

I am new to the boards and new to these guns. I have a friend who wants to sell her Mauser and trying to help her. I have some pictures and trying to get some basic info.

I know it is a .380 and I think the s/n is 01.27627. I can't tell if the first digit is a 0 or a D but based on what I am reading...think it is a 0.  At a basic level, is this gun considered a collectors gun? 

Any guidance would be very appreciated. Thanks,

Hi folks. A friend recently inherited an HSC from her father (S/N 756642). It has a machined clip with a Mauser stamp, and nicely worn {walnut?} grips. She is curious about its provenance, and whether it has any value as a collectible. Thanks, JR

01.27627 would be late 1971, early 1972.
Over 50 years old today and collectable indeed.


756642 appears to have a military acceptance at the left side. The commercial proofs on the right side are Eagle/N ones. Military accepted HSc's are desirable and collectable.

I have a Mauser Werke A.G. Obefrndorf a N.  Serial number 779462.  It has the low screw on the handle and the eagle with a N under it on the slide and on the trigger guard.  Can anyone provide and information on this gun.  Thanks

Your serial number is way too high for a Low Grip Screw variation.


The Eagle/N is the standard commercial proof of those days.


Production year 1942.
