C039480 U.S. ARMY M3 PISTOL SHOULDER HOLSTER.
The M3 shoulder holster was used extensively by paratroopers, aircrew and tankers. It was the standard holster used with the M1911 A1 Colt .45 automatic pistol throughout WW2. Made from a single piece of leather folded over and stitched together to make a pocket, has a lift-the dot fastener to the top flap. At the bottom of the holster is another strap, that ends in a female snap fastener, in which the male mating piece is stuck, that folds back on itself and would normally snap to the front of the holster to create a loop. A leather strap is reinforced stitched to the topmost corner of the holster that mates to a brass, single prong buckle. Strap has torn a bit near the stitching but it still firmly held in place. Stamped to the front of the holster is "U.S.". Shows the expected age and use. Maker marked and dated for 1943.
