6/19/19 - This is an original 1942 dated Luger holster from WWII. The holster is black leather, but the ink is a little faded / somewhat worn in a few areas. The back leather is maker stamped and 1942 dated, along with a waffen proof stamp. The stitching and leather are all original. Fairly pliable and has honest wear - black polish would do well to clean this holster up, but we leave that up to our customers if they wish to polish. All original and authentic.
