Most every Luger description contains the word rare. In this case there are four known and this is one of them.  This is a 7.65mm Mauser prototype with no serial number and only marked with the Crown Oberndorf proof.

This is a 7.65mm, 4" (100mm) barreled prototype Parabellum.  The Wa A66 is the Waffen Amt military proof and the Large Oberndorf proof on the front link makes this a Mauser product. These Prototypes manufactured by Mauser for design and test purposes.  This weapon does not show signs of being fired repeatedly, if at all, so it was really a design prototype.

The smooth walnut grips feel unusual to some who handles Lugers daily but it is a good feel.  The grips feel wider but are the same

There is a stock lug, but no serial numbers.  There are some small inspector marks are a very few parts, otherwise the gun is devoid of inspection marks except for the Crown U.  The Crown U is on the front of the frame, the breach block, left side of the receiver, the bottom of the barrel and rear toggle link.

 

 

There are no marks, proofs or inspection proofs inside the frame.

 

As the pictures depict this is a very clean gun in almost 99.9% condition.  Simply a magnificent Luger and a Mauser Collector's dream come true to find one available.
