Hi All,

A custom made private purchase holster was of a Brazilian Officer that fought with the Fifth American Army in Italy in the Second War.

The similarity of the M1911 pistol standard coldre and P38 german coldre is incredible. Note in images above:

Maybe a front made .45 holster ... made by Italians used US material ... for Brazilian Officer and your captured german P38 pistol.

To me is quite evident this holster was made by a very good leather shop with new material. For sure they found inspiration in german style double flap but the holster is without doubt for an M1911A1. It's not impossible it was made in Italy but they wouldn't have install a Lift The Dot snap so I think it was made in Brazil and bought before embarquement to Italy.
Look if the LTD bear the brazilian mark EBERLE.
