Which one is that....for the turn of the century USMC marked .38 revolvers or the Model of 1909 .45 caliber revolver? Either case, it's a rare and expensive holster in any condition and particularly that nice. I saw an equally minty USMC marked .38 revolver for sale recently and it was big bucks.

My dream pistol is the USMC Model of 1909. Best I can do for now is a box of cartridges for it. :D

It's a 1909 for .45LC revolver. For more pics go to

http://cgi.ebay.com/...I...p;rd=1&rd=1

I suggest you to download those pics. We dont know how many time will pass before we could see another one in these conditions.

Wow! That's a real nice example of a very rare M1909 USMC holster. I found mine on Ebay as well, but got it back in the early days for $60. The USMC marking on mine is very faint. Here are all of my USMC pistol holsters of the time period. Left to right: M1905, M1909, M1912 mounted, and M1912 dismounted.

As usual you have an "impossible" collection. I wonder why in the mounted 1912 they had swivel inverted (compared to US RIA) and added two rivets below the hook. In the pics is a sample which appeared on ebay few monts ago. The seller smartly moved the hook below the rivets with no mention the original place was split. Other pic is a dismounted made by HOYT caught on ebay in the same period. Too bad I cannot remember how much people paid for them.
