Fn high power 9mm wwii nazi occupation of belgium with holster

I posted this question on the Handgun: The Semi-Automatic Forum, and one the members suggested I post my question on the C&R Forum.... The pictures are located in the the Semi-Automatic Forum, I could not reload them...

I am new to this site, I hope someone can help me with a couple of questions about this pistol. I received this pistol from my dad before he passed. He brought it back from France during the german occupation.

I have attached some pictures which show the S/N 955 in two places and 31 955. Not sure what the 31 means or it's just not a matching gun. It has the Nazi Eagle over WaA 140 on all the parts of the gun. Both magazines have no markings at all. The grips appear to be plastic, so they had to be replaced at some point.

Like to know if there is any value and the approximate age of this gun. Thank you very much in advance for any information you can provide.

Pete

"WaA140 was in fact, the 3rd Waffenamt Acceptance Stamp employed for 640(b) production, not the only (WaA613 followed by WaA103 both preceeded WaA140), and was used from January 1942 through September 1944, when the Germans abandoned the FN plant."
