I acquired this at the last Pgh. gun show. A very nice looking all matching pistol with soft holster and extra mag.
Thanks for looking,
Joe

Is it an "AC" Code date?

Nice P-38, I like that holster. I have a repro of that for my 1962 P-38

It appears to be. With a 43 date code, it could only be AC or BYF.

It is a 1943 Walther P38 and all parts are matching. The holster is 44marked on the back. Mags are just P38 marked. I paid 725 which I consider a fair price considering the" condition" + holster+extra mag.
Your comments are appreciated,

I think you did well. I sold a plain CYQ a few months back for $1100. It was in comparable condition.

Regarding the mags, they should also be marked "E / 359" on the spine. E/135 are for Mauser and E/88 are Spreewerk. There was also another code, that was also for CYQ.

Jim, You are correct. They are both marked 359 on the spine along with a proof mark (Walther).

Well that one is one that's on the side which refers to the maker. What was I thinking of is in the link, the inspector aka the waffenamt code, WaA706.
