    Looking at not only the construction, but additional markings in ink, looks good to me. Maker "fuq" also made a small contract of P35(p)"Radom" holsters. Of the few I have seen, all were die-struck stamped between the belt loops "fuq | 1942". The code is identified as "Cottbusser Leaderwarenwerk Curt Vogel K.G., Cottbus, Wernerstr. 62."

    I have to agree with Ham. That is a beautiful example.
