Who knows their Luger P08's?

I have a friend who was just left a Wartime Pickup, complete with the authorization letter. It is a 1938 marked commercial Luger P08, no Nazi markings. It's in excellent condition, with 2 original mags. It's in a fitted wooden case that was made post-war here in the US. The case has a slot for a second pistol, don't know what kind, that is not present. The second pistol is similar in that it has a naked barrel like the Luger, but a more upright grip, and, judging from the width of the space for the magazine compared to that for the luger mag, was in a smaller caliber, possibly 9mm kurtz (.380). Any idea what kind of value something like this might have? She's going to send me some pictures, which I will post as soon as I get them, but I'd like to give her some kind of ball-park value range before someone talks her into a dumb deal before she knows what she has.

Thanks,

Johnn

I'd bet the other pistol was a P38. Lugers tend to go between $600 and $2000. Tough to be more accurate without pics and details.

When you get pictures, post them at the Luger Forum (http://www.lugerforum.com/) and you will get some very sound estimates of the gun's value.
