Boxed OSS Shoulder Holster

Does anyone else have one of these? These were sold by Ray Willas as NOS that was purchased at a naval auction years ago.  Other than that story,  I have never seen proof one way or the other as to originality. They are some differences that don't match known original shoulder holsters. I have been told the stock number does not match known  US Military Property Numbers.

Either way, I have not seen many for sale.

Was Ray Willas the guy who also had the NOS Gen. Officer's belts, holster's, etc.?

I am not sure but he did sell boxes for 1911A1's and I believe those were reproductions. I have only seen 3 or 4 of these boxed holsters so other than comparing to know originals, I  don't think there is proof one way or the other concerning originality. I have an original and both are made of very thin leather. The age of an original is very difficult to duplicate so that is a guide.
