    I'm thinking that is a pocket holster?

    It is a pocket holster and it has the older Heiser mark on the front so it is old - I think pre 1925? Back is pretty boring except for some sweat or other marks? It does show how nicely made it is. I was lucky to get it.

    I like the button to hold it in a coat pocket. I have one for a short barreled SAA but no button. Does fit perfectly in the back pocket of a pair of Osh Kosh bib overalls though :cool:

    You would be correct Sir. This is from Wikipedia
    " The Railway Express Agency (REA), founded as the American Railway Express Agency and later renamed the American Railway Express Inc., was a national package delivery service that operated in the United States from 1918 to 1975. REA arranged transport and delivery via existing railroad infrastructure, much as today's UPS or DHL companies use roads and air transport. It was created through the forced consolidation of existing services into a national near-monopoly to ensure the rapid and safe movement of parcels, money, and goods during World War I.

    REA ceased operations in 1975, when its business model ceased to be viable."

    I have enjoyed all of the photos you have posted showing all the memorabilia of the past with the firearms. I wonder if someday if my grandkids will look at my badge, gear and service weapon and say "wow, grandpa's polymer service pistol sure looks cool."

    Here is one from a while ago, again just fooling around. Guns and accoutrements that a forward thinking (and well off) deputy sheriff circa 1910 might use. Savage 1899H SRC in 32-40 (rare caliber for Savage) and a Colt 1900 pistol in 38acp (rare model that still has its sight safety) in a period Porter holster actually made for that model (or the 1902). Holsters made for these pistols are very scarce.

    Not as detailed as your photos Levallois, but I call this my 1869 rig. 1866 Winchester replica (Uberti) 44 WCF, Uberti Colt Conversion 38 Colt, with skinning knife, and my old Stetson Gun Club that is showing its age.

    Thanks! I liked the gun and the carved ivory but I borrowed the watch from a neighbor. The original owner owned a bar/speak easy in Chicago during Prohibition. The watch was solid gold and 23 jewell and still runs like a champ. I had fun rebuilding his 1911 (bar owner's 1911) for the nephew that has both gun and watch now.

    My 1874 rig.
    Uberti SAA .45 Colt, 4 3/4 inch barrel. Uberti 1873 short rifle 20 inch barrel. A inexpensive Bowie Knife I picked up and made a new sheath for it, and 1980's Stetson 4X. I think the 4 3/4 inch SAA is my favorite. That barrel length has such nice balance.
