Still going through pictures...

This is a holster I bought from a private WWI museum in Pennsylvania a couple of years ago. I also bought a canvas TM08 carrier and a WWI lanyard attached to a P08.

What makes this piece odd is that it is coated with what seems to be a rubber paint. The fellow who owns the museum told me that it was the second he had seen.

Has anyone here ever seen such a holster? Any idea as to what the story behind it might be?

There are some substances that the Germans used in WW2 which was waterproofing but haven't heard one for WW1. The substances that I am familiar with was applied with a brush or wipe cloth. This doesn't mean that they didn't use it , just that I have not seen it used on this period of holster before. I wouldn't be too concerned about it. It is just another variation, uncommon one at that. Do you want to sell it ????

George, I have seen one other of these only from the WW2 era as I recall. Robert Tracy owns it or did last I saw it. The finish looked original to the manufacture. Not put on after the holster was made. Certainly unusual. Same color and had a plastic/rubber/paint feel to it. Jerry Burney
