Difficult to find date. Looks solid in condition testing stiffness and shape with sound stitching. Looks like dyed black inside and out long ago. Light markings. Those are first observations.

Genuine 1935 Army holsters in almost all cases have 193 much lighter struck than the 5. Kind of like you might see as an added number 5 as an afterthought. It's a tell to me if I am actually looking at a 1935 or something else. Here I suspect it might be something else. It's very difficult to actually make out the date. But since the 5 is NOT more pronounced it COULD be a 4 or a 6. The leather cleaning rod strap and tube points to a 1934. Not saying it CAN'T be marked 1935 but indicators say no.
Price makes a huge difference when it comes to dates on these. See if you can pin point the date a bit better?
One more thought..even if it WERE a 1935 a very lightly struck date that's hard to make out drastically affects price. Any collector wants clearly struck markings..the better the marks the higher the price.

Hi Brandon,
I think your 1935 is a good one; It's definitly a 1935 one (see pic creeping and "photoshop heat treated") and leather devices for cleaning rod are OK for early 1935 holsters

I agree, it's a 1935 date. Is the tool pouch closure stud is damaged on it though? I believe I've seen this holster before.

Have the seller send you a pic of the tool pouch opened up. I believe I've seen this holster before and the closure stud was ripped from the tool pouch. This definitely will affect value!

I agree with Matt..the stud looks like it is out of place.

Wow, that is a rare Holster. I have never seen one before and thought that is not real but after Looking through arvive I found in the Heeres Verordnungsblatt that the rod was replaced by the RG 34 in Mai 1935. I have 3 1935 dated Army holsters whithout the rod holder and will look to find one with it.
Thanks for sharing!
