First off, I know these pictures are terrible. But an elderly friend of mine has been helping another very elderly lady bring her to the doctors and such.
In her house she has a number of items that her late husband brought back from Germany. They include a civic police helmet, a dove head saber, a lion or panther head saber, this K98? and other items.
My friend was able to discuss these items with her and quickly take some pictures. He is going to attempt to take clearer pictures in the future.
In the meantime I've offer to help identify and discribe the items for this woman and try give her estimates on value. I do hope to eventually purchase them (which is a long shot) but my first priority is to help her out.
That said, here are a few very bad pictures.
At first glance it looks like a K98 with a muzzle cover and a flat butt plate. But in looking closer the slot for the sling does not appear to be typical, and I do not see the typical drop in the wood stock near the bolt release. Also the left side of the receiver looks very odd.
Any thoughts on this one?
Thanks and Regards,
