Next to this it is marked with a Weimar style "Stick Eagle" Waffenamt inspection mark over WaA234.
The overall condition of the holster is very good, with supple brown leather, mostly intact heavy stitching, original loops, take down tool pocket, and pistol ejection strap. There is some separation in the seams, but the stitching looks to be intact, and there is no sideways movement.
The included wide brown leather "claw belt" is typical of the type worn by officers. It is 2 1/4 inches wide, and about 43 inches in overall length, and marked 202 / CROUPON by the buckle. It probably is adjustable from 34 to 40 inches. The leather is in good shape, with moderate wear, and no major cracks or other damage.
A really nice holster and belt set that will complete any P08 Luger WWII era pistol.
The Pistole Parabellum—or Parabellum-Pistole (Pistol Parabellum), commonly known as just Luger —is a toggle-locked recoil-operated semi-automatic pistol which was produced in several models and by several nations from 1898 to 1948. The design was first patented by Georg Luger as an improvement upon the Borchardt Automatic Pistol and was produced as the Parabellum Automatic Pistol, Borchardt-Luger System by the German arms manufacturer Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken (DWM). The first production model was known as the Modell 1900 Parabellum. Followed by the "Marinepistole 1904" for the Imperial German Navy. The later versions included the popular "Parabellum Pistole Modell von 1908" or simply "P08" (Pistole 1908) which was produced by DWM and other manufacturers such as W+F Bern, Krieghoff, Simson, Mauser, and Vickers. The first Parabellum pistol was adopted by the Swiss army in May 1900. 1904 they were adopted by the German Navy. In German Army service, it was adopted in slightly modified form as the Pistole Modell 1908 (Pistole 08) in caliber 9×19mm Parabellum. The Model 08 was eventually succeeded by the Walther P38.
The Luger is well known from its use by Germans during World War I and World War II, along with the interwar Weimar Republic and the postwar East German Volkspolizei. The P.08 was introduced in 7.65mm Parabellum, though it is notable for being the pistol for which the 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge was developed, also known as the 9×19mm Luger. The pistol has been used in fictional works by many villainous characters over the past several decades because of its association with WW2 Germany.
