J. T. IRICK, CASPER WYO Holster with brass spots $ 485.00 Free Domestic Shipping
Sweet and sturdy! Nice antique holster from a highly regarded maker. J T Irick started his career in Cheyenne Wyoming working under F.A. Meanea and came north after Meanea's death to open his own saddlery. This lined holster is made of extra thick harness leather. The holster has not been cut down, the loop is good and tight; no rot or repairs. There is one of three small rivet towards the top inside that was put in place to hold the lining. The lining has come away from the rivet around the edges but it's still intact and not completely torn away. The holster has decorative whip stitching around the inner areas, all hand done; it's very attractive. It's been bunkhouse decorated with brass spots; there is one larger 13/16" spot that forms the center of a 'flower' and the others are all about 9/16" making a dozen spots in all. This is a holster for a shorter barrel gun, possibly a Colt Police Positive with a 4" barrel or Lightning Shopkeeper model. The actual dimensions are 7.5" on the barrel side by 3 3/4" across the opening.
Just a really nice representation of a regular cowboy's holster: Marked Diamond Brand 6 1/2 - 38 (made for Shapleighs) on the upper hoop this type of hardware store holster was probably more in demand than many of the famous maker's brands however one seldom ever sees them on the open market.

Probably made for a policemen's duty belt. There is a small amount of damage to the area of the toe. Please look at the close-up pictures of this spot. Intricate construction.

Now here's something you don't see every day! Super rare holser and cartridge belt. The cartridge belt is an inexpensive, stamped Marshall-Wells department store variety however the value here is in the holster which bears the stamp of the most famous Dude Ranch in Wyoming, the Eaton's Ranch in Wolf, near Sheridan. The stamp is the likeness of the brand logo which is still used to this day, an oval coiled lariat with an arrow pointing upwards in the middle of the ropes. Condition of the holster and belt is about fair-good. The belt is worst for the wear, the cartridge loops have become unstitched from the belt, the square buckle is scuffed and worn. It's stamped 98. The double loop holster is in better condition; the loops are just barely hanging on, the leather on the inside is torn but not rotted through or repaired. The leather is light duty, probably meant more of an 1890's souvenir of the 135 year old Ranch than anything but the fact that it's survived at all is remarkable. Measures 9" on the barrel side and the opening is 5" across the top.
