2/16/18 - This is an original 1943 dated P.38 holster. The holster is in great shape with nice black leather that is somewhat soft and pliable, but overall very nice. There is no major issue or serious wear on this holster. The stitching is all original and in tact. The back of the holster has a light maker stamp "ewx" and light "1943" date stamp. There is also a waffen eagle WaA195 military proof stamp. Guaranteed original and authentic.
