This item we are offering is a very rare Charles P. Shipley Flap Side Holster in 90% New Condition showing very light sign of wear. The C. P. Shipley Saddlery & Mercantile was among the finest of the recognized Old West Saddleries, and they produced this Flap Side Holster from the finest premium heavyweight skirting leather. This incredible find was made the C. P. Shipley Saddlery to carry a Smith & Wesson model 27 .38 Special or .357 Magnum Caliber Revolver with a 3 barrel length for the right hand shooter.
This gorgeous Flap Side Holster is properly marked with the C. P. Shipley Kansas City Makers Mark logo which would date this beautiful holster from 1935 and 1972. The CO. P. Shipley Saddlery & Mercantile Company closed permanently in 1972 and this beauty predates that time the marks were similar over a long period of years so to pin point a date is difficult.
