5/26/17 - This is an original pre-WW2 production "papa" nambu holster. The holster is beautiful, in excellent condition overall with very nice leather and stitching. The main body of leather is all original, reddish brown in color, and only has very light wrinkling on the top leather near the pivot area. The interior leather and ammo pouch is very clean and excellent. The shoulder straps are reproduction, but the hardware (brass fittings) are original, but from a donor piece. Overall this is still a very rare holster in beautiful condition.
