This is an original Vietnam era US GI M1916 belt holster in absolutely fantastic condition! This holster was apparently never issued. The leather is soft and supple with no rips or tears. It is made of black leather rather than the russet brown used during WWI and WWII. The stitching is 100% intact with no fraying whatsoever. The US Logo marking on the flap is distinct and undamaged. On the rear of the holster is the manufacturer markings "Bolen Leather Prod. 77914566".
This is a right handed holster made to fit the Colt M1911 or M1911A1 pistol. This is the same style holster used by the U.S. military since WWI for the M1911. Also, it is the last version used during the Vietnam conflict.
They don't get much mintier than this! Full sized files available by request.
