1/24/18 - This is an original WW2 Luger holster dated 1942. The back of this holster is dated, maker code stamped, and waffen eagle WaA145 military proof stamped. The black leather is very firm and excellent overall with very little wear or notable flaws. The front lid has been lightly embellished with some surface engraving of oak leaves (similar to engravings seen by the Walther factory). There is no way to tell the time period when these were added, but they appears to be very well done. The interior leather is very clean. The stitching is all original and in tact. Overall a very crisp holster - guaranteed original.
