I have a 1942 german luger that was brought back from WWII by my Great Uncle. I do not want to sell it but am trying to find a price guide for insurance purposes. Any suggestions? It has the original leather holster, field cleaning kit, magazine, and all numbers match. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

The value of your pistol depends on the condition. You have stated that all the numbers are matching. Does that include the trigger, grips, main toggle pin, hold open, breech block and firing pin? If it is all matching and the condition is very good, then it is worth about $1000. More if the condition is near 100%

It's going to be hard to get a good appraisal unless you document every marking on the gun and submit this info with a request. Lugers can vary quite wildly in price.

Miminal value would be in the $400-500 range. Chances are if the finish is decent at all, it'll be worth a bit more.
