Hello to all!
I've recently bought a beautifull Luger holster.

It's marked WwSu 1940, p08 , and with a eagle.
Below that eagle he's marked with Su 19.

Where does SU stand for, and when was Su used, instead of WaA?

Who can help me?

greetings from Holland,
Frank!

HALLO Frank! I love Holland, as I lived there for 7 years!

I ahve no idea, but welcome to the forum, and I am sure folks will be back with you. I know that SU (by itself) was used on gun markings, as one of mine has that marking!
Can we have full front and back pictures of the holster and any other guns you have (in seperate threads :D)

Hello Frank,


On page 130 of Costanzo's world of Lugers. Identifies this as a Simson/Ulbricht contract #19 proof for police holsters. Although it shows it in conjunction with the earlier down wing eagle. "Extremely Rare" as per Costanzo.

Hello!

I bought him along with a ppk holster and a officers belt. they're all in a very nice condition. They weren't used very long. The owner died ar march 1942.

Greetings,
Frank

Hello!
Funny to hear Ed, that you also lived in holland.

Ron:
Thanks for the great information.

They mean probably , that the police marked ones are rare, not the Heer eagle ones. :( How is it possible, that this is a eagle marked one? Can you tell by the way what Su mean? (Like WaA means: WaffenAmbt)

Thanks for your help!
Frank

Enough of Sam Costanzo and his "out of the sky " book ! Su is the depot rework stamp for Spandau Depot[ SU ] . Your holster was not repaired there in this case but was Made there instead with its own leather shop or sadderly shop as the Germans called it. It was approved or accepted into services with the use of the Spandau inspector SU 19 rather than a waffenamt stamp.

Hello,
There's ofcourse also the normal marking.

Does WwSu not mean that he was made in:

Waffenwerkestadt Spandau

He was then accepted by Spandau inspector SU 19 .

Is that correct?

Frank!
