Default Is this holster authentic?

Just bought this 1945 USMC holster for my 1945 Remington Rand Service Grade. Does everything appear authentic? I will post some pictures of it with my 1911 soon if it checks out!

I have owned a few and I would say yes it is a real military holster.

Looks legit. I have two of those, but the Army versions.

Jwitten. That is a great looking holster, in great shape for its age. I use this stuff on older leather item to restore some flexibility:

I opted to get this one. While not a wartime dated original, this one is pretty well built for the price. And it browned up nicely after using the Pecards on it.

My Dad uses Johnson Paste Wax on leather and swears by it. I've tried it on a Ka-Bar sheath and liked the look it gave it. Would that be ok to use as well do you think?

The paste wax is good for newer leather. But I really favor the Pecards for antique leather. It’s formulated specifically for leather. That’s all they do.

I like Oakwood. It's lanolin based and will not harm stitching.
It's for horse equipment such as saddles, etc.
