Can anyone tell me when this one was made? Serial 209217. No waffenampt but has the Hungarian Crest.

Can someone also ID this holster? I can't make out the ink stamp. It came with the pistol but I'm not sure it's actually a Femaru holster.

The Germans had two contracts with the Hungarians for these pistols all the while producing them for their troops. German in 7.65 and Hungarian in 9mm Kurtz. The holster in question isn't Hungarian issue for that time period, best I know and that eagle stamp leaves me cold for sure. I really like these pistols and have what I think is a very nice collection of German examples.

Do you agree with RyanE that the nazi stamp is fake?

209XXX is fairly late production. I third that the holster is a post-war Hungarian holster for the PA-63. Seeing lots of them lately trying to be passed as originals with fake markings.
