    Vintage SAA holster has been modified

    I bought an early 1900s SAA recently and it came in this old original store-brand holster. The holster is marked for a 4 3/4” SAA and it fits the gun like a glove so I am sure the pair has been together for a long time. The holster is marked in a couple of place with the “RMP” stamp. The problem is that the holster was modified (a lot) sometime in its life. The toe was cut back, the throat opening was enlarged and the holster was cut loose from the skirt and then the two were sewn together at the top with a rawhide strip. There are even two or three places where fine wire was used to hold things together.

    Can anyone tell me the vintage of the holster? It it has some value I will put it up for sale. Any estimate of its value? Thanks.

    The condition and the modifications just about kill any serious value. It may still bring a few busks on eBay.

    This all started with one gun!

    This is what could happen in the bunkhouse over a long winter...

    It'd make a good display of that setting, along with a well-worn SAA, but it really has little value.
