Gibbs of Texas holsters?

I'm curious about the lineage of this one. The design certainly has elements of Myres/El Paso to it, but it's stamped "Gibbs of Texas, Inc" and "Gilmer, Texas."

The crest certainly looks familiar:



The stitching in the rear is similar to a Threepersons, but the holster is more aggressively canted and hangs lower.



The taper towards the muzzle is more pronounced, and the thumbstrap looks closer to a Bucheimer.



Craftsmanship is excellent, on par with what I'd expect from a Myres protege. Anyone familiar with this outfit?

I don't know about that make, but it's a good lookin holster. With that cant, I wonder if it was meant to be a cross-draw or a left-handed butt-forward holster.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.
