Art: Originally I identified your Mauser as a Type L "Afrikan Model" in the previous thread. I have since taken a closer look at the photos and it appears to have a 24" barrel. Original Type L Mausers have a 27 1/2" barrel. If it is a 24" barrel, your rifle started life as a Mauser Type G (full stock rifle) that was modified by cutting the stock forend back several inches. Unfortunately, this affects the collector value substantially. You still have a fine looking rifle that was built in 1913.
