11/8/17 - This is an original WW1 production Luger holster, with a scarce and very early 1912 manufacture date. The holster is maker stamped and dated on the front body of leather with a maker stamp and "16 12" underneath. The interior lid is ink stamped with a 1912 date as well. The holster leather is fairly firm with nice all original finish. There is some surface wear and small spots of staining but this is normal. Only light surface wrinkling, no major flaws. The stitching is all original and excellent. Very hard to find and/or upgrade!
