US Army Issue Saddle Bags

A much lighter color than the other set of similar bags I have listed. It is relatively free from preservatives but with minor

staining as visible in the photos. Some leather scuffing is noted at the bottom of each bag. The only fault is that one of the leather strap billets has broken at the second hole and is about 2 inches shorter. It does not detract from the fact that the bags are above average in appearance. They are sound and can be used now. Marked; Long, W.J.D., and 1917.

US Holster for 7 1/2 inch Colt 45, 1898/99

Extra nice Lanz, Owen made leather holster for the long barrel 7 1/2 inch Colt 45. Very strong leather, no cracks, stud tight, holes not widened, all stitched seams tight. One of the better holsters I have had. Lanz, Owen& Co, Chicago, was the only contractor that the US Army used to make 3010 holsters for the conflict with Spain. 1000 in 1898 and 2010 in 1899. H.K. inspector stamp on flap. The leather is much stronger and thicker than the Rock Island made holsters. The long flap is used to go over the web belt. This holster dates precisely to the Spanish American War. The actual Colt in the photo is for perspective only and not for sale,

Price: $925.00
