Hi Dave,

I have one holster with a four digit # on front like yours. When I got it (in Germany) the collector who sold it to me explained that this was the serial # of the pistol belonging to it. Sort of a system to keep holsters and weapons together.
Also according to this source, this was common practice in Police Stations, where the rigs were placed hanging on a rack, easy to reach in case of an emergency.
Is there on the backside of your holster not a police-bound marking, like a sun with a character inside?

I am not an expert, but this is what I learned about my holster.

Dave Sanders, I have Imperial Luger rigs with holsters so marked to the serial number of the pistol. I have also had NSDAP Police holsters marked with the serial number. I'd bet it is a serial number.
