My reference table places it at mid-1944 production. That looks like a waffenamt on the left side of the frame at the trigger guard. WaA 359
Is the Wehrmacht acceptance stamp for the Walther factory.

Bluebook is known to be conservative. Percentages are subjective. Gunbroker advanced search of completed auctions will provide upper bound of value. Providing a value estimate via two photos is a fool’s errand.

$700-1000 would be a good start. Maybe a little higher with the WaA. What are they asking ?

Amen.

And the Blue Book is often meaningless for some makes and models of guns. The editors apply certain assumptions and prejudices that are either unrealistic or not universally accepted.

Sometimes the Blue Book's only usefulness is to gauge what untutored others might imagine a gun is worth if an ignorant buyer can be found.

If you're trying to sell a PP series Walther at your LGS and they look it up in the blue book, you'll most likely receive a greatly devalued appraisal of its value. The blue book is a hand wave that does address the many factors affecting value, nor does it cover the many variants of any given pistol.

This can also work in your favor when you find a Walther gem at your LGS for several hundred dollars.
