Ah, I had a feeling it was for some South American country, I went thru almost all of the South American countries looking for coat of arms and missed Peru :)
Just curious on the rarity, it has one-piece wood grip it is not for sale but I just want to know.

Thanks,
Steve

They are not rare in themselves. However, I've never seen one with the first pattern one piece grip. May be worth a premium. A nice condition example sells for about the same as German issue, in similar condition, without unit marks and such. Between $100-250.00.

Since they were made for the Peruvian 1909s, I'm surprised the Germans would've made any with the one-piece grips. In my experience they run a bit lower than the German-used quillbacks- everyone goes "ooh quillback" and then sees it's not Imperial and puts it back on the table.
