I got this from my aunt when my uncle passed away, and want some information if possible.
I'll try post pics first time on this site. On the lower corner is L.Z.A. J.erfurt,on the inside flap is
Hurman Thieme,Magdeburg 1918 best I can make out. Thanks for any information on this.

Looks like a German holster for one of the 7.65 cal pistols used by Germany in WWI. There are a few of those on the list, so really, in the absence of the gun or an imprint from the gun on the inside - it is whichever fits best and which magazine fits best in the spare mag pouch

Thanks to Martin Krause <here> and <here>:

"According to research by Krause and Cate, L.Z.A. over eagle over J.[Erfurt] signifies:
Leder-Zuweisungs-Amt Inspection Berlin which translates to: Leather Allocation Office, Berlin"

Thanks to Klaus Merzbach <here> your holster's maker is probably: "379 Hermann Thieme, Magdeburg"

IMHO your holster is the large size appropriate for a large 7.65mm WWI German pistol like a ​Langenhan FL Selsbstlader
