Your holster is not modified in any way but was procured by the German Navy with these features. It is a " Mordhorst " manufacturer which has commercial interests that go back a very long time [ 1850's] with the German Navy. The Mordhorst holster is never found dated but at times will be hallmarked with their logo. They not only made holsters for the small pocket pistols but also Lugers.
