6/13/18 - This is an original WW2 P.38 hardshell holster. The back of the holster is faintly maker stamped "ewx" and 1942 dated. There's also a waffen proof eagle under the date. The leather is soft and pliable with normal exterior wear and wrinkling in the leather. The stitching is all in tact except for the back left belt loop has a few missing stitches (but still attached). The interior leather is pebble grain, which is unique and makes this holster somewhat more desirable. Guaranteed original.
