7/26/18 - This is an original WW2 production Radom holster. The holster was made brown, but has been painted black, as is evident by looking at the back of the holster. This at first looks odd, but Hitler and Goring wanted all of the soldiers to have black holsters, so the military painted all of their brown holsters black. They did so quickly, thus why the back isn't painted (it didn't show when attached to a uniform). The leather has some scuffing on the magazine pouch and shows aging and use, but overall is in good condition. The stitching is all original and in tact. I did not find any maker stamps or date markings.
