This is an excellent black leather holster made to accommodate the large “Army” size Colt revolvers.

The holster “pocket” measures about 12” along its front edge. Holster is made from a single piece of black bridle leather; the flap being an extended part of the body. A hole near the point of the flap closes on a brass finial. Holster has a 1 ¼” wide belt loop sewn to the reverse. Retains its leather plug closing the end of the holster.

The makers’ mark, “MOYER BR__” is found near the fold in the flap. The Moyer firm as saddle and harness makers in Philadelphia dates back to 1811. By the time of the Civil War it was run by brothers William, Edward and Augustus. They had government contracts in 1862-63 (and perhaps at other points) for various accouterments, including shoulder and waist belts, scabbards, pistol cartridge boxes, saber belts, etc. They also advertised themselves as selling “officers’ military equipments,” saddles, bridles, valises, haversacks, etc.

In overall very good condition, this holster shows no use. Entire leather body shows light crazing but no loss of the surface finish. This is an excellent, military-style flap holster for Colt Army revolvers.   [jet]
