5/2/18 - This is an original 1943 dated holster for a 1911A1 from WW2. The holster shows overall signs of use and aging. The leather is worn and pliable and the closure knob is loose but still completely attached. The back leather still has a nice maker stamp and legible date stamp. The stitching has no issues. Overall a WW2 issued holster with honest wear. Guaranteed original.
