Please delete if not appropriate. This pistol was liberated by a friends father during WWII. You will note authentication papers.

Interesting WW2 souvineer

Actally the holster is of more interest than the pistol. Can you show a picture of any
markings such as initials of the mfg and/or the date?

The document is the one issued in the E.T.O. to permit the soldier to bring it home.
The rule was one firearm but many brought back more if they were officers and could get
away with it.

Very nice german handgun. My grandfather brought back 2 lugers (still has 1) the other got stolen. While my other grandfather has his issue 1911 (Ya he maybe stole it) but he said it was the only thing he could trust with his life, a luger, and a hitler youth knife. Definently something that gives more history than anything else... all captured from time on duty.

The gun is the Czech CZ-24; it is a rotating barrel delayed blowback in caliber 9mm Browning Short (.380 ACP). They were Czech army issue prior to the German takeover of Czechoslovakia when tens of thousands were seized by the Germans and issued to their military and police. After 1938, the CZ-24 was phased out and a simplified blowback version, the CZ-27, was produced for the German and Czech puppet governments. A Nazi proofed CZ-24 brings around $400; a Kriegsmarine (German Navy) issue brings around twice that if authentic.
