I graduated from high school in June 1954. In September, I joined the U.S. Army and was sent in 1955 to Austria and then Germany for two years. I met a lot of girls and one brought me home to meet her family, very nice people. Her dad asked if I could get him American cigarettes, so I said I’d try. He then brought out this Mauser pistol and equipment and said, “I’ll give it to you for a carton of cigarettes. The next day I brought him two cartons — total price $2.00. Would you be able to let me know how much it is worth? I have attached photos.
