Holster, Belt Pistol, Colt .45, Tex Tan, USMC, Named

€275.00

Very nice genuine WWII US leather holster, re-used during the Korean War, intended for the Colt .45 pistol and manufactured by Texas Tanning & Manufacturing Co. Issued to all branches of service.

The flap features a magnificent US Marine Corps gilt Eagle, Globe, Anchor insignia, of the type intended for the Blue Dress cap. Brass snap fastener of the Lift-the-Dot typeA decorative plaited leather lace has been attached onto the eyelet intended for this purpose thanks to some brass clamping system. All metal parts on both the holster itself -- including the belt hook --and the above-mentioned 'lanyard' have been carefully polished.

Though hardly legible, a name has been handwritten in the holster (maybe Chudzinski), along with initials USMC. Another inscription has been inked under the latter, yet only the last part is legible: [...] nski, Jr. These details may indicate that the holster belonged to Joseph C. Chudzinski, Jr (1933-2020), who served in the Marine Corps from 1951 to 1954 (service number 1200949), aboard the USS Mississippi.
