Walther PPK Engraved

This pistol was made in 1940 based on the serial number range and was a private purchase piece. Smooth finish and with the Walther script on the Bakelite grip. There is a monogram inlay on the frame beneath the barrel KHW , and one of the animal inlays appears to be the Luftwaffe Eagle, so we researched German Ace Pilots in the post 1940/41 time period and found a fighter ace named Karl-Wilhelm Hofmann who was with JG2 Richtofen. JG2 had unit symbols including an owl and gryphon, which appear to also be inlays on this pistol. That is about as close as we can get to identifying this pistol and its owner. It may be a privately engraved item or a Walther custom shop item but Walther has no records surviving from WWII to help with the identification. This is an operational pistol and prohibited status in Can'tada. Canadians must have 12(6) licencing to own this. We will co-operate with the tedious process to legally export this item to any country with more reasonable firearms laws.
