Price check on a smith and wesson revolver holster

Hoping someone can give me an approximate value on a black leather Smith and Wesson holster. Appears to be part of a police ric for an officers revolver. I will get some pics and numbers off of it this weekend and post. Just didn't know if it had any value. Thanks

depends on the maker, condition and finally demand, far too many variables with too many unanswered questions

some pics of the holster

Here are some pics of he holster. From what i can tell from the snap and stamp in the leather on the back of the holster it is actually made by Smith and Wesson. B17 and 34 are also stamped on the back. Thanks for any help. Value, what fits it etc.

That looks like a S&W version of a Jordan Border partol holster. My gun shop has several versions in the used holster box right now. Buchiemer, Jay-pee, and a couple of Don Humes. All in better condition. They are selling for between $10.00, and $20.00. I believe these holsters became obsolite with the move to security holsters.

Thanks for the info. Didn't know if there would be any more value since was smith and wesson.

"...a Jordan Border patrol holster...part of a police rig..." Yep. They work pretty well. One of the first holsters I made was similar.
S&W had 'em made for them by one of the holster companies. Haven't a clue which one. Might be of interest to a Smith 'stuff' collector. Not worth a pile of money though.

Smith had holsters made for them for a while, they ranged from decent to fair quality and design in general. Last one I bought (a basic Threepersons type) I believe I paid $15 in like new condition.
