11/10/17 - This is an original 1938 dated Luger holster from WW2. The holster has nice dark brown leather that's somehwat pliable and completely in tact. There is some surface wrinkling on the back toe, and light surface cracking on the edges of the magazine pouch. This is all normal, non-excessive wear. The stitching is all tight and excellent. The back leather is maker stamped waffen WaA142, and 1938 dated. The "8" looks like it could be a "6", but we know this is an "8" due to the stick winged waffen proof that wouldn't have been in use until 1938. Guaranteed all original and authentic.
