This is probably not much help, but Samuel Dale Myres was a “Saddler” at Sweetwater 1900-20, and at El Paso 1921-53. He died in 1953, but the shop continued operating by his sons until 1965.

The guy who might be able to identify El Paso die stamp variations seems to have quit this forum.

Very hard to date just from the stamp. The El Paso stamp you have is believed to be the earlier one (before 1950 or so if I recall correctly) but is not a sure fire way of dating.

Check out Red Nichols book Holstory and his blog.

Myres holsters are very hard to date, especially a model that was in their line since the late 1930’s. The stamp on your holster did seem to be used more on older holsters but here’s proof the stamps co-existed.
The good news is that’s a great holster no matter when it was made. And I’m happy others recommend the book Holstory.
