    I was surprised to find this Spanish American War era 1889 Navy holster. And grenade launcher sight, T59E3 experimental version. Both for $25.

    Very impressive. I saw a Navy 1889 Pattern Cartridge Box with the wooden cartridge pack sell at auction the other day for $2450. Other than the one in your rig pictured it was the only one I have ever seen.

    I have a feeling my USN holster is pretty valuable, and I best not carry one of my Officer's Models in it in the field. Don't know how much, but I see them pretty high.

    Possibly some Militia (?) but more likely an express company or similar. Holster is definitely original to the 1899 Six Shooter - both marked 12X.

    U.S. FLAP HOLSTER W/DUAL HOLES THAT FASTEN OVER BRASS STUD. SIMILAR TO 1906-08 DESIGNS SHOWN IN E. SCOTT MEADOWS BOOK, EXCEPT W/TWO HOLES IN FLAP. SCOTT CONFIRMED THIS AS A COLT M1892 HOLSTER, A TYPE SEEN BEFORE, BUT HASN'T IDENTIFIED THE OTHER REVOLVER. RETAINS PART OF LEATHER STRIP THRU BELT LOOP FOR TYING TO A CARTRIDGE BELT. HAS LONG BELT LOOP (FOR 30-40 WOVEN BELT), W/3 RIVETS & SEWED TO BACK. LEFT HAND. FORWARD ANGLE. BTM PLUGGED. SMALL BRASS LANYARD MISSING FROM BTM PLUG, LEAVING A DRAIN HOLE. THE "US" IN OVAL ON POUCH WAS WEAK STRUCK ON LEFT SIDE. LOWER FLAP STAMPED "E. H. / 24TH CO / K", WITH ANOTHER "K" ON BACK OF BELT LOOP.

    These 24th Infantry Co. K black troops were sent to the Philippines in 1905 and 1911.
