6/20/19 - This is an original 1943 dated P.38 holster. The holster is in great shape with nice black leather that is somewhat soft and pliable, but overall very nice. There is no major issue or serious wear on this holster. Some minor surface cracking near the toe, but not bad. The stitching is all original and in tact. The back of the holster has a maker stamp "clg" and "1943" date stamp. There is also a waffen eagle WaA866 military proof stamp. Guaranteed original and authentic.
