12/28/17 - This is an original WW2 era early variation Papa Nambu holster. The holster is all leather with original stitching. The biggest issue is a small hole near the toe of the holster on the side. There is also typical aging and use wear throughout the leather, which is generally pliable. This type of condition is common for these Papa Nambu holsters. The stitching is all in tact except where there is some seperation on the pivot area of the holster, and on the closure strap, which appears glued down instead of stitched (see photos).
