Not a firearms question, I guess. I just bought a early civilian shoulder holster for the 1911/1911A1 marked G. C. DOVERSPIKE on the front of the holster backing above the holster itself. The holster body is sewn and rivited to the the backing and there are two magazine pouches that are on either side of the holster. The shoulder strap goes over the left shoulder and there is a waist belt attached but no loop at the bottom of the holster to tie to the pants belt. It looks something like a US "Tanker's" holster.

I hope that my discription is good enough for some one to id it. Maker, maker's city or state etc. i would guess that the holster dates from the mid or late '20's to the mid '30's.
