This is a full-flap, military holster designed to hold the pistol at the wearer’s right side with the butt to the rear. The flap is one-piece, long with a key-hole for the stud near its lower edge rather than a latch tab. The stud is lead or pewter, pointed, and still firmly in place. The hole shows some tooling along the narrow slit at the top and just typical stretching and a little wear at the bottom from latching and unlatching, and holding the pistol in place.

The belt loop is firmly in place on the reverse and consists of a wide, single piece of leather sewn in place, with one end sewn to the body, looped up and back and then secured at the lower end with a wide box of stitching along its bottom edge. The loop is wide enough for a sword belt and would hold the revolver straight up and down. When closed, the flap is steeply angled down to the front. Measured from the upper tip of the closed flap, at the rear, the holster measures roughly 13 inches in length.

The leather is in excellent condition, firm but not stiff, with good surface, black in color, oxidizing slightly toward brown, and showing some minor rubbing and wear, but no flaking. The holster is full length. The toe plug is missing and the very tip is slightly flattened, but shows it has not been cut or broken.

There is a small number “23” incised on the holster body on either side of the fastening stud. This could be a soldier’s rack number, indicating it was carried by an enlisted man, but it would make a great addition to either a Confederate cavalry or Confederate officer’s display. It is tough to find even Yankee holsters this nice.  [sr]
