Thanks Hawg and Mike. I have about 10 total pictures but none of them show the stitching close enough to make the call with 100% certainty. The pictures are from an auction for the gun and holster....but I have no specifics.

Mike....I agree that the holster looks a little newer than the 1830 due to the lack of the metal toe. If only I could see pick it up and take a look. :) I'll have to do some more research.

Thanks again for the input!!!

Over here in Europe, it would easily go up to $3,000,- plus whatever percentage the auction house wants for it's effort.

Guns and automobiles are such evil beings. Methinks they are planning to eradicate the entire human race. They are prolly extra-terrestial.

Very hard to tell from the photos.   I do know that many of the early holster designs were made by matching the edges and baseball or whip stitched together to make a flat seam.   
My best guess is that the main seam is sewn just like any other fold over pouch and trimmed close and sanded to finish the seam.   Most revolver holsters for belt carry were made that way.
To me this holster looks to be made a little later than when the Patterson first came out in 1836.    It looks more like the holsters made later in the 1850's.    Maybe it was one of  the first of this type.

My opine is it was stitched and then ground down as close to the stitches as possible.
