12/21/18 - This is an original 1943 dated Hi Power holster from WW2. The holster has great brown leather that's completely in tact and all original stitching in tact as well. There is one small, light "chew" mark on the front leather where it meets the top of the magazine pouch - clearly from having a magazine inside and being closed. The interior leather is stamped with a maker that appears to be "alv". There's also a waffen eagle stamp and "43" date stamp. All of these are on the interior and are imprinted with blue ink. Guaranteed original and authentic.
