Original and extremely scarce Pre WWI & WWI U. Marine Corps issue M1912 Swivel Holster for the Colt M-1911. This holster is pictured with text on page 363 in Scott Meadow's book U. Military Holsters And Pistol Cartridge Boxes.
Holster remains in good solid pliable condition, has never been repaired nor modified, and is faintly embossed "USMC" on the flap. Holster still has attached a partial removable leather leg thong which is missing its buckle assemble. These are most always missing or taken off during their original use. Overall a very decent rare WWI U. Marine holster which were only manufactured in limited numbers and saw hard use during WWI and afterwards in the tropics during the Banana Wars.Surviving specimens are very hard to find. Absolutely 100% guaranteed to be an original.
