Any info on this Dreyse .25ACP Vest Pocket Pistol?

Hey guys,

A friend of mine just brought over an interesting little piece. It was a Dreyse .25ACP Vest Pocket Pistol. His father obtained it a few years ago from a neighbor after her husband died. The husband, a WWII vet, accepted this from a German officer right after V-E day.

It's serial # 74XXX, and is in gorgeous condition. The finish is about 95%, with a crisp, shiny bore. The rifling in the barrel is immaculate as well. It came with the original leather holster, and 1 magazine.

Can anyone help me dig up some information on this pistol, such as: when it was made, what it was a probable veteran of, and it's approximate price?

Pictures are a plenty here: http://www.elm3r.com/pix/main.php?g2...g2_itemId=4620

The Blue Book doesn't have much on it other than to state that it was made from 1912 to 1915. There is no indication of Nazi use so it was very likely just a personal weapon.

Prcie is: 100% 325. 98%= 235, 95%= 150

they state to add 100% if it is an early version with double extractors
