Where to get rare Luger appraisal?

I have what I believe to be an extremely rare Luger.
It was purchased out of a WW2 vets estate.

I need an appraisal for insurance purposes.

It's a 1940 Mauser Banner Police w/ eagleN and eagleC proofs. The eagleC proof in 1940 is apparently super rare.

I located one website that indicated that only 19 of these particular 1940 Lugers are known to exist. Perhaps mine is the 20th.

Anyone have suggestions or experience on how to get a decent appraisal without sending the gun by mail?

Thanks,
dfr

Just be careful. There are many fake stamped and altered pistols out there to make run of the mill Lugers into something special.
