Certainly European. No clue about the hide or maker but it’s very cool. I like the belt set up quite a bit. I’m guessing it’s German. Maybe 50’s to 70’s? Liner reminds me of something older but I really don’t know. Either way it’s cool!

I'm not an expert on this but I was thinking that and I would guess at mid to late 1960's. It's sometimes hard with makers to pin down years because sometimes they used old style labels and hardware for years after they were made simply because they had them in stock. I worked with a leather jacket maker here who was using 1960's labels and zips well into the 1980's.

Hide is not possible to tell without DNA testing but if it is European what is more likely?
