Default Holster question/ what is this

This Holster belongs to my 1941 BYF Luger. Iím not that familiar with what I have and am trying to get an education. I have never seen a holster with this eagle. Any help would be appreciated.
Thx

It is the Eagle from a German cap/hat. Someone just added it to the flap. Not entirely uncommon. Someone other than the Germans did this. The krauts kept their eagles on their hats.

Holster is perfectly legit. Nothing wrong with it.
It is a 1941 Luger holster made by Curt Vogel, Cottbus "fuq" with WaA14 inspector proof on it. Condition looks to be very good, with the exception of the insignia installed on the flap of course.

As mentioned, the insignia is from a visor cap I believe. Most likely the vet who captured the holster put this on it.

Some collectors feel this devalues the holster. Others feel differently.
Either way, you have a very nice holster.

Hope this helps,
Matt

Its an outstanding holster ... great condition.
I agree the eagle is 'added' and I don't think it detracts from the holsters value at all.
Even with the eagle removed at worst you will have 1-2 small holes and perhaps a 'halo' of the eagle which still makes this holster in far better condition than most.

Leave it and enjoy it IMO.

I believe the eagle is from a German customs officials visit cap.
