Lot 420: Superb non-regulation Confederate leather belt holster for a large-cailber sidearm, measuring approximately 15? long and 7.5? at widest, with a ball-type brass finial, fully intact flap and closure tab, original tightly sewn leather bottom plug, and 3 x 5 belt loop. Constructed of supple black bridle leather, this is a strong example that appears to be form-fitted for a large frame revolver such as a Colt Model 1851 Navy, Colt Army Model 1860, or Remington New Model Army. Light overall crazing to leather, flaking and cracking to flap surface, and some scuffing at hinge, otherwise fine condition; a small area at the front of the flap is noticeably worn and slightly protruded, evidently due to the revolver's hammer rubbing against it while in use.
