Article about: It's the same cotton-filled material which the Red Army introduced in WW2 (Telogreika), which was excellent against the cold - and possibly was more fire-poof... QUOTE=Scout;937204]Nice find

ok, took some photos...
Hungarian cold-war pistol-holster collection:
Hungarian TT33 TOKAREV holsters - as far as I know, I have all types that were made. These were used from the end of the WW2 until about 1963 - when the PA63 type was introduced...
The first 2 type from the left is the same design as the WW2 Hungarian FROMMER M37 holster, with some minor differences (the FROMMER holster had pouch for 2 magazines). Cleanling rods (I have to get a few still) go inside in these. The 3rd and 4th is mainly artfic. leather with leather parts (clouser tab, magazine pouch, and belt leather rings). Cleaning rods go outside on these.
Also some of them are clrearly marked (see last photo: with 1948 or 1949 date), some of them faded over the years.
Hungarian PA63 holsters - also all types:
The brown ones are Army, the black ones are police, the white ones for both Army special troops, military police, etc. and also the police used these. The 3rd black one - is a more modern design from the 1980s - 1990s. The cleaning rods go inside in a small pocket, also I have all the magazines for these. Black magazines are for the Army made black PA63s - the silver, alu ended ones for the police guns. All these are leather...
On the last photo, there is also PA63 holster for civillian clothes wearing police officers - used in the 1970s - 1980s.
Here is the two types of PA63s:
