** "jhv" Code 1941-Dated Hungarian Femaru Model 37 Pistol with Tropical Holster

7.65mm (.32ACP). 3.9" barrel length. SN: 48950. Blued finish grooved hardwood grip. Standard Femaru slide markings with "jhv/41" code and date at rear of slide on left side. Matching serial numbers on frame, slide and barrel. "{Eagle}/WaA56" inspection on front web of left side of triggerguard, with small "{Eagle}" inspection on slide. Pistol includes two correctly marked blued finger extension magazines and a leather and canvas German "Tropical" holster with indistinct maker's mark and inspections on the belt loop.


Very good. Retains much of the blued finish with some scattered surface oxidation, minor surface crust and the expected thinning and loss from high edge wear, handling and use. All markings remain clear, mechanically functional, very good bore with some frosting. Includes a moderately worn tropical holster with weak markings on the belt loop. Belt loop stitching mostly missing with loop repaired.

Estimate: $500 - $700
