Hi Doyler!

I remember an old 2008 topic in which a holster like your one was discussed. As usually (on Victory revolvers, U.S. holsters and more...) the last word was told by Charlie (Flick...). He stated that he had never been able to identify this maker which, according to the Meadows' book is an unidentified WWII maker, but, more probably, just had a relatively small contract only during the Korean War. Charlie said that probably, soon or later it will pop up like a Leather Manufacturing Enterprise or so...

I add a picture stolen from an old topic of another Forum (sorry, forgive me...)which shows a nice Victory revolver in a L.M.E. Nov.1953 holster. Noticeably a loop for ammo was added to the shoulder strap...

Thanks Manny

 

I was thinking the numbers a lot or rack/control number.I got 5 of these from the same source and all numbered different.The guy I got them from stated he thought they were assembly numbers for the pattern or something when they were made as he had nade a bunch of hilsters and numbered the pieces when assembled.Not sure he was really remembering something or was confused.

Isn't LME Line Material Equipment? for some reason the name is familiar.

 

 

Could very well be.

 

Sounds real familiar.I am thinking they were/are a manufacturer for equipment for power linemen.Will ask around at work.
