Thanks guys, for all the info. I'm slowly learning about all these WW2 items, and owe the lump sum of my meager knowledge to the kind replies and patient guidance of you fine folks! I kind of feel like the proverbial blind squirrel that found a little nut.

Congrats Scott on a major league score of a rare variant type....including a Blessing laced with some Envy from the top Heer Collectors in the hobby. You don well. Regards Larry
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

Thats like turning up your new metaal detector for the first time and hitting silver within a yard!
Great find Scott!

Well worth the hunt and the waiting! A decent and Rarely seen Heer variety! Good job!

That's a very nice early Wingen. Like the others said, rare piece with a beautiful dark grip. Congretulations on this find
