9/23/19 - This is a fairly early and scarce 1942 dated Hi Power holster. Most hi power holsters found today are 1943 or 1944 dated. This holster is dated under the closure strap along with an "dta" maker stamp and waffen WaA195 proof stamp. The black leather has some wrinkling and normal surface wear (signs of use and aging) throughout the leather. One very minor cut on the right side of the closure flap. The stitching is completely in tact and tight. Overall this is a great piece that shows some honest wear and use. Guaranteed original.
