Super early Walther Olympia 1925 with unusual WALTHER banner marked grip and correct combination screwdriver magazine.
Near excellent original high gloss salt blue with sharp edge wear and minor handling as might be expected from careful use. Comparable condition grips and combination magazine. Mirror bright bore. Perfect manual mechanics. An extremely early 1925 Walther Olympia whose features will surely delight any serious Walther collector.22
