Got a text from my dealer yesterday morning with someone wanting to trade this in… He asked me if I would be interested… I said “of course I’ll be there in a few minutes”… This is my first pistol of this type… Excited to read about these here… Only markings are the ‘T’ under the slide. Took it apart cleaned it up put it back together… Now I need to find some 32 ACP ammo. That is what I need? This looks all original to me, any ideas on value? I believe it’s a 1908 vintage.
Looks like a sweet shooter! If I’m reading it correctly, Sam Lisker’s website dates it to 1909. Yes, 32 ACP is what you need. Have fun with it!
What with the popularity of these truly outstanding little pistols the way it is, the money for 'em can get a ways beyond what folks might be OK with. A type III in similar condition as ^that one is right in the neighborhood of $500. Better ones get more.
A type II is going to start a little higher, and go up. That one ^ has to be $600 minimum these days, and often more.
A type II 1908 .380 will be significantly more $ to begin with, if you can find one. They do exist, but there were only 6250 of 'em made, and nobody knows how many have survived.
