7/28/17 - This is an original WW2 era Mauser Hsc holster. The holster is dated 1941 and maker code stamped "jhg" below the closure strap. The holster has nice leather with some normal wear and light exterior scuffing that can easily be cleaned or polished if desired. The biggest issue with the holster is the missing stitching on the side flap - which the photos clearly show. The flap is still attached and completely in tact. Guaranteed original and authentic.
