Description:

Henry Nordhaus moved his business from San Antonio, Texas to Deming, New Mexico in 1887, where he perfected this style of holster. It is a tooled, single loop, "jockstrap" style holster of brown leather stamped with maker's mark and "44" on the front and tooling consisting of "X" border patterns. The single loop is secured by rivets with a thinner strap around the bottom.

Rating Definition:

Fine, showing some mild wear and minor flaking on the front and some moderate rubbing on the back of the belt loop with mostly well-defined markings. A rare holster type from a desirable maker!
