Need help identifiying an old presumably a french 765.....it is marked on the left side of the receiver as 1915 de guerre and the words paramount. Pistol is in near excellent shape except for the blueing. Anyone have any idea what i do have ? Bought it for the wife to have around house out on farm.

My sincerest thanks.

WW1 French army RUBY semiautomatic military pistol .38 cal manufactured by Paramount. The basic same design was also made in Spain and Belgium. I have seen them sell for around $300.00.
