10/9/18 - This is an original 1943 dated P.38 holster from WW2. The holster has a "jln" maker stamp, 1943 date, and waffen proof military stamp on the back leather along with the P.38 stamp. The black leather has light surface wrinkling and very light surface cracking on the top leather and closure strap. Overall strong leather though with minimal pliability. Mostly normal wear throughout and no stitching issues. Guaranteed original.
