Hi All :

Offers from members (reasonable please) are being accepted for one ( 1 ) Heiser like ( VL&A - Von Lengerke & Antoine stamped - " 5 " & " 32 ") Remington Model 51 pistol in 380 ACP or 32 ACP ...a right front pocket or right rear hip pocket holster, maybe also for a Colt Pocket Model Hammerless pistol in 380 ACP or 32 ACP with a 5 inch barrel.

An older original manufactured leather holster from the early to mid 1920's or early to mid 1930's, the leather is still in good shape, still with good color and no fading/staining. A couple of minor stitch repairs along the far outside, straight edge and toe area of holster. A professional leather, shoe and boot repair shop near me, completed the minor repair work. (VIew Photos)

A little history of the Von Lengerke & Antoine Company...a famous spot in Chicago during the 1920's and mid 1930's, very friendly with and sold "goods" to the local "boys", with a store front photo of the place during business hours. And a catalog page from a local seller/supplier, Peter Von Frantzius, another trusted supplier to the "boys" of the famous "Chicago typewriter" !!! - (From its use by Chicago's underworld in the prohibition era, and likening the rattling sound of gunfire to that of a typewriter)..... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_von_Frantzius

another good article here...http://www.myalcaponemuseum.com/id83.htm
BOTH GOOD READS......

The famous Al Capone gang / Bugs Moran gang and some other Chicago gangland groups/members and all around "wiseguys" shopped here for some of their "business" related items, weapons/gear to be used, at later "business" meetings, (Thompson sub-machine guns, police belts/badges, called " stars", bulletproof vests, ammo, Chicago Policeman's Uniform, etc.) and other "needed" stuff, by the way !!!.

More pics of holster possible, just message me.

Tks

Steve
