    Vintage Kennedy bros arms holster ID help

    Sorry for posting this here but I couldn’t find a better place for it. I acquired a pair of vintage Kennedy Bros Arms Co holsters in excellent condition. My gut tells me they’re pre WW2. But I can’t find any chart to match the model numbers to. Both are flap holsters. One is marked 1308C, the other 1309C 6 1/2. Any ideas? Anyone have a chart?

    I think your right on the Kennedy BROs being pre-war holster manufacturers. I seem to recall them being a Mid-western concern, Minnesota or thereabouts. i thought I had a reference that mentioned them, but I can't find anything.

    I saw a reprint of one of their catalogs offered for sale by Cornell Publications when I was looking for something else. They were a St. Paul Minnesota Sporting Goods house from the late 1800's until sometime in the later half of the 20th century.

    Looks like someone purchased a couple of nice holsters and forgot to use them. Very nice examples.
