I recently acquired a Walther PPK/S, and I'm not sure what I have. Specifics on the gun are as follow:

Finish: Nickle
I find no Nickle finish PPK/S in the Blue Book.
Can this be original finish?

(Walther logo) PPK/S Cal.9mm kurz
Made in W. Germany

Right side of slide: (W. German "N" proof mark)
Serial number 211174
Interarms (logo) Alexandria Virginia

Left side of frame: No markings

Right side of frame: Serial number 211174S

Grips: Wood
Eagle with a lighting bolt emblems

Please check GunBroker.com walther auctions--they have a PPK/S similar to what you have, ? maybe?
I have read that there were "verchromt" plated pistols made (Gene Gangarosa's Walther book). Also, in the Hoffschmidt book "Know your Walther PP & PPK Pistols, an ad on pg.21 indicates that chrome was an option for $10 more in 1955. so I'd guess you have an uncommon, but not unheard of PPK/S, if that's the original finish. I have seen them rarely on auction before, but never gave it much thought. I hope this helps.
Good luck,
