1860 Army Slim Jim Rig
Circa 1860 – 1865
for a Colt 1860 Army
This beautiful, early tooled, 1860 Army Slim Jim Holster Rig is in great shape. The Slim Jim holster comes with a Rock Island marked Artillery Officers belt. The belt shows the heavy cast Pattern 1851 Officers belt plate. The holster is unmarked as to maker with very high quality floral carving. The holster and belt are in very good condition showing use and some period repairs on the holster.
The round brass/silver toe cap was lost and a period replacement was made with leather. As a result, the barrel of the gun wore a hole in the leather replacement. Also, the original belt flap was replaced and moved a little higher on the holster from the original location. In addition, the replacement flap is attached with period rivets and glue. Lastly, all the original stitching is present and good.
All the original stitching is present and good. Due to the revolver cylinder going in & out, the top front of the holster shows some wear. Also, there are two holes punched in the front, probably for a tie down strap. All and all, the leather is in great condition for both the holster and belt, and the holster is beautifully carved.
Toy gun shown in Clarks Antiques antique gun leather photos not included.
