Multi-piece supple leather construction accented with brass rivets and fittings. The holster features an open top, fully functioning single securing strap. To the reverse, two narrow leather straps and brass buckles which fasten to a belt. Additionally, a “V” shaped riveted buckle used to secure braces. No observable maker marks, but is stamped “09” with a broad arrow stamp above on the inside as pictured. Despite a small portion of the strap missing, the holster remains in excellent shape.
