These russet leather holsters are most often associated with the Colt 1905 Marine Corps pattern .38 revolver, but also seem to have been in use earlier, when Marines were carrying Navy 1889 Colts. This one is in outstanding condition with a lustrous deep brown finish that shows just some rubbing along high points such as the flap edge, the top of the belt loop and around the toe. The inside of the flap has a small crack in the leather near the embossed USMC that does not go to the surface. The embossed USMC is as crisp and sharp as the day it was made and stands out across the room. This carries the revolver with the butt to the rear, as most of this pattern do. The belt loop is secured with three iron rivets and the flap fastens with a brass snap.

Historically this is a significant holster not just because it is connected with the adoption of the double-action .38 caliber revolver, but because it is associated with role of the US Marine Corps in the extension of US power on the world stage in the late nineteenth century.  [sr]
