Want to show my Femaru M37 "Luftwaffe 21" Holster. Marked "jsd 1942".
Comments are welcome. (It looks too good for me, maybe ((Belarius?)) repro...)

Karl...I also have a minty Femaru holster such as this...fairly sure it is also 1942 JSD manufacture...or maybe a CDC...I will have to dig it out and post a photo(s)...Looks authentic and original to me, also...Beautiful condition...

I bought the same holster in 2011 from a Russian eBay Seller in Moscow named e.a.s.611. Holster was said to be part of the stash of German equipment captured at the end of WWII and warehoused until the wall came down. At the time, it was about $90 with shipping. Mine has the insides of the rivets coated which I have read is common for holsters captured and stored by the Russians.

Ed, Great looking holster, but they will always be suspect to me. I realize they were dug out of a warehouse sometime in the 50s, but I like the dark leather Luftwaffe or desert holsters.
MOO,
Joe

I think you're right, it almost looks like mine !

Interesting why only the interior of the rivet was coated for storage.... I wonder if this was done where the rivet was compressed or peened causing the original finish to be compromised?
I remember when those holsters started flooding the market back in the early 2000's, yes we have been reassured they are right, however I always like the look and feel of a combat used one.

The details, if one cares to look on these examples,does not lie. If one were to choose a type of holster to make/fake this would not be at the top of the easy list.

Sam, it's a misplaced thread .......not rivet....Not sure why there is a green hallow around it??

Some of the different variations of the dropping holsters have an extra rivet that goes through the belt loop to the rear of the holsters to keep them from allowing the holster to drop. I have an example made for the FN 'water pistols' that had a rivet placed in that location, but evidently was later removed allowing the holster to drop. So, it is not a misplaced thread in my opinion, but where a metal rivet (brass perhaps) was located to keep the holster from dropping. Regards, JIM

Jim, there isn't a rivet there now......Just a thread. But that would explain the green hallow.
