7/24/18 - This is an original, scarce 1944 dated hardhsell P.38 holster. The holster is in excellent condition overall with all original leather and stitching in tact. The front leather has surface wrinkling, but this is normal wear. The interior leather is clean and there's a military eagle ink stamp on the interior lid. The magazine pouch also has some minor scuffing, but again, normal wear and not excessive. The back of the holster is maker stamped and dated. The stitching is all original and in tact. Guaranteed original.
