6/13/19 - This is an excellent, original WW2 production P.38 hardshell holster dated 1944. Finding late war hardshell holsters like this is rare because by 1944 most holsters were softshell for the P.38. The back leather of this holster is gmo maker stamped and "4" stamped for 1944. There's also a waffen proof stamp and P.38 stamp. The leather is strong, firm, clean and all original. Excellent overall leather. Stitching appears all original and in tact as well.
