    WW1 M1911 holster question

    I could use a little advice here. Is this a legitimate WW1 holster? I have never seen one with the date stamp on the front flap before. I've only seen the stamp on the back of the holster. Also, can anyone identify the maker? Looks like three initials. I bought this for my grandson who has become quite the collector. Any idea of value?
    Thanks!

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    I'd say that holster is good. I can't say who the maker is, others will be along to identify it. Nice catch... Value depends on where you are. In Canadaicon that might command more by rarity than where you are.
