7/23/18 - This is an original 1941 production P.38 holster. These early WW2 production holsters are hard to find. The back of the holster is maker stamped, dated, and waffen proofed. The wafffen proof and P.38 stamp are faint but visible. The leather is somewhat soft and plilable but excellent conditoin overall with no major flaws, but there is a small blemish near the toe of the holster. This is a crack that goes fairly deep, but not all the way through the leather. The stitching is all original and in tact. Fairly clean interior leahter as well. Guaranteed original and authentic.
