    Think I found my 1st gear treasure. Mills Holster 1905

    Thought I'd share this. I bought 3 boxes of old holsters and web gear a few weeks back and this was in it. I took it to two of our local militaria dealers and they both said genuine. Patent April 1905. Still has the revolver outline in it. I've always wanted a Mills holster but never could afford it.

    The filler is probably much easier to come by than the wrapper? Very nice. Thanks for sharing. It looks to be in amazingly good condition.
