Show "thickness".....that counts too...and was one of the original design shrifts of the PP/PPK series. PP/PPK is less than an inch thick...sometimes this matters. As does the external hammer vs striker-fire feature......

You're absolutely correct; thickness is very important. I did a width comparison shot between a newer S&W PPK/S and the P99c AS in this blog:
When Fashion Goes Macho—Walther P99c AS in 9mm

It also contains shots comparing total length and butt length (height). Overall, the P99c compares very favorably with the PPK/S, considering that with the P99c you get 9mm and additional capacity over the PP-series. That's why the P99c is my primary carry piece, but the PPK/S remains my go-to weapon when I need something just a tad more concealable.

That looks to be a beauty, Doug. Nice job. We'll no doubt be reading all about it on your blog in the not-too-distant future, right?

Very nice gun!!!
It may have some minor blemishes based on what you show in the pictures, yet it looks to be in great shape for its age. Now, what will be the benefit of refinishing the gun over having it "as is" with the original finish?
I do understand that it will look better, my question is, what effect will that have on its value? I have always struggle with this myself, the pros and cons of leave it original or refinish?

I understand about the potential impact on the collector value, but I'm superficial that way—beauty over substance.

Although I married well on both counts.
