Seller's Description

RARE WWII SA Walther PP Holster

This very rare piece is from a WWII collection of my Great Uncle Irving, which I inherited about ten years ago. My Uncle was a Official Signal Corps War Photographer in WWII for the 45th Infantry Division of the 7th Army, having served in Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia-Pacific. As such, he had behind-the-scenes access to many high-level top secret meetings, including the signing of the Surrender Agreement by the German Third Reich, which ended World War II. I am fortunate to have also inherited his photos, developed by him on site, many of which were actually published. Some of them are stamped, "Confidential Until Reclassified By Censor" or "Restricted" or "Passed For Publication" on their back. Included in his collection are a few items he confiscated from Nazi soldiers while in Europe during the Liberation: 1) A Third Reich Flag; 2) A Nazi Youth Belt Buckle; and 3) This very rare WWII German Military Officer Leather Mauser Gun Holster. This original SA marked brown leather holster was made to hold a Walther Model PP that was manufactured for the Sturmabteilung or "SA"...the Storm Troopers or "Brown Shirts" that functioned as a paramilitary protective organization for the Nazi Party and Hitler's personal security. The SA played a key role in facilitating Adolf Hitler's rise to power in the 1920's and 1930's. This pistol (not included) was manufactured in about 1940. The front flap is well marked with the large stylized "SA". The breakaway flap has the DRGM marking (signifying a registered design of the German Reich). D.R.G.M stands for "Deutsches Reiches Gebrauchs Musterschutz" - meaning protected patented design under the Reich Government. On the inside of the flap, it is marked "SA der NSDAP" which indicates it was issued to an SA leader within central Germany. Additional markings read "Stander 20 Wittenberre Geldverwaltum," the significance of which I am not clear. The holster is in excellent shape with minor wear but no holes, tears or loose stitching. What makes this even more unique, is that the soldier who used this holster clearly removed the original large belt loop on the back and replaced it with three smaller loops in order to attach two leather straps (included), one to go around the waist; the other across the body or over the shoulder. There were 37 different SA groups and it is estimated that about 6000 Walther PP pistols were issued between them, each marked with the specific SA group name to which it was issued. All SA marked pistols are scarce while examples from some of the SA groups are extremely rare or non-existent. This is an excellent example of an extremely hard to find item...and would make a great addition to anyone's WWII or Walther collection. Historically, although extremely rare to find, the holster with gun has been auctioned for as much as $9,005.00 (see attached image). The holster on its own, in mint condition, has auctioned for as much as $4850 (see attached image). My Uncle's holster is in excellent condition, which merits a very fair asking price.
