Correct unnumbered magazine with wood plug. Holster dated “23” with added magazine pouch (spare magazine not present).
VG+ with holster wear and thinning as one might expect with military service use.

Comparable grips with sharp checkering, oil staining and a few handling marks. Mirror bore. Perfect manual mechanics. VG holster, the leather retainer for the forward shoulder strap D ring having been restitched. A very nice 1924 Bern Luger equally at home in your collection or at the range.
