Hello!
I bought this PPK holster with the Luger holster and the officers belt on the foto. they belonged to one person. A Leutnant of a pioneer Bataillon.(he died in 1942) Is the PPK holster a private purchase/ commercial ww2 model, or a political model. (or something else ofcourse)

Who can help me?

Greetings from Holland!

Frank,
Unless someone else jumps in with better information, I would conclude that this holster is a private purchase/commercial item since the owner was an Officer and as such probably purchased his own weapon. Also, there is no Waffenamt on it. Very nice purchase though!!

FRank,

The holster if it is not waffenamt accepted was most likely a private purchase. It is known however, that some officers were allowed and very well may have obtained pistols and holsters through private channels. The holster you have was manufactured by Albrecht Kind, Berlin-Nurnberg. On the outside of the breakaway holster flap is the company logo (crossed pistols over crossed rifles entwined in a wreath) and below that is Akah which represents the the first name of the manufacturer ALBRECHT Kind. Above the logo are the capital letters D.R.G.M. which stand for roughly-German Government Registered Design. Albrecht Kind held the original registration (similar to a patent but not exactly) on this holster design. This company was one of the largest manufacturers in Germany of holsters for the military and for commercial sales. Many branches of the German government during the war utilized Albrecht Kind (Akah) made holsters as well as the political (party leader) groups. The problem is a lot of government agencies did not mark their holsters so it is difficult to tell which group may have used them. Political party holsters were typically marked however with a Nazi emblem or inside the holster flap NSDAP for example. Looks like you have a very nice PPK breakaway holster and belt.
