Original U.S. WWI M1916 .45 Colt 1911 Leather Holster by Graton & Knight Co. - Dated 1918
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very rare totally original WWI Model 1916 holster for the .45 auto. This holster is maker marked G. & K. for Graton & Knight Manufacturing Co., Worcester, Mass. This holster was made in 1918 and inspected by C.A.C.. Graton & Knight made many of these holsters for WWI and WWII, however the date along with the brass belt clip indicates this is definitely a WW1 holster close to 100 years in age. Research also indicates that C.A.C. may stand for "Coastal Artillery Corps", but this is not confirmed.
This M1916 holster in very good condition, with a deep russet brown color to the leather, with no major damage, and just wear and marks from age. All stitches still intact, with all brass parts still present, though there is some verdigris buildup around the rivets and hanger.
Just perfect for a WWI issue 1911 .45 pistol!
