It copies original construction in all details including the blackened
brass eagle snap closure. This pouch would normally be worn on the
M1912 garrison belt, along with the M1912 pistol holster and belt
frog. Enlisted men were also issued a leather clip pouch for M1903
Springfield ammo. All these accessories are available from WPG.
I am offering this reproduction just as they were originally issued, in
vegetable tanned undyed russet leather. The leather will darken over
time with exposure to saddle soap, oil and polish. The metal is
blackened brass as originally specified, although most originals were
eventually polished. Photo shows my reproduction and an original pouch
for comparison This offering is for the reproduction pouch only.
Pouch copies original markings, but with inspector initials of WPG.
