The round brass/silver toe cap was lost and a period replacement was made of leather. The barrel of the gun wore a hole in the leather replacement. The original belt flap was replaced and moved a little higher on the holster from the original location. The replacement flap is attached with period rivets and glue. All the original stitching is present and good.

This beautiful early, tooled, California Slim Jim Holster is unmarked as to maker.  This 1860 army holster is a very attractive piece of antique gun leather.  The tooling is very high quality and in great condition. This antique holster shows use with some period repairs.

The top front of the holster shows some wear from the revolver cylinder going in & out and there are two holes punched in the front, probably for a tie down strap. All and all it’s a beautiful holster and the leather is in great shape. If a period metal toe cap could be found, it would show even better.
