Now you've posed that question, I just realised mine is a Scottish-built Diana, not an Original!
The Scot-built guns have a date stamp on the end of the butt, as in 4/57 (month/year).
I dunno if the Deutschlanders did this???

Hope this helps, atb, Shinny.

Hi. I have a few of these, Originals 23,25,27,35 & Dianas 22, Webley junior ( Same as Diana 22 ! )
In my opinion the Originals are much nicer than the Diana,s & The scottish Milbro guns " Enough said ! "

The 23,25 &35 are very nice,
Value I would put the smaller models ( Up to 25 ) Around 40-50
The 27 is quite a bit bigger & Nicer, The 35 nicer in my opinion than the HW 35 ?

I have Pics but " Photobucket " Has gone to sleep, Later !
Ged.
