Just purchased my first FN, a 1922 7.65 made in 1946.

Was on Gunbroker and no one was bidding. I have 3 Beretta 7.65's: a 1915/17; a 1935 (made in 147) and a Model 70. They fit in with my 1951 Berett and Taurus PT 99, a Beretta clone.

I liked shoot those little guns and thought I'd look to find a few more. FN and John Browning are the ne plus ultra in terms historic pistols and I found it difficult resist looking for one. I found it on Gunbroker.

It was advertised as a pre-war model, but I did a couple of hours of interwebs research and figured out it was post war: there's no lanyard loop; there is a 6 in a poorly stuck box on the trigger guard for 1946 manufacture; there are only 16 cuts in the slide (instead of 17 for prewar, 18 wartime), the De is capitalized and it has Belgain proof marks (no Nazi marks). Got it for bit under $300. Here's a pic:
