So would this gun have been plated after it was decommission?
Why would that be? And how would it have gotten to the states then?
The gun was most likely brought back by a returning GI, then plated, which was popular in the years after the war. In those days, the gun was just a souvenir taken from the enemy, and not the "collectible" of today's era of collectormania.
