    I would like some help and info about these two pouches mainly about pouch #1 if anyone can read to stamping and know anything about it and post it would be great! I would like to know a little about pouch #2 as well. I believe they are both Original.

    Both are original.

    The first has RB number 0/0390/0087.

    "0390" will be the (unknown at present) code for the town they were made in.

    Here is a nice link:

    Hello,
    yes they're both original M1911 pouches made between 1943 and 1943.
    First one is the usual simplified riveted type with RBNr marking....
    Second one is more interesting IMO....it is also a simplified type pouch but has both sewings in front and rivets on the side of the closure flaps....plus a special treatment of leather which is not pebbled like on the first pouch...it's more hatched than pebbled if you know what i mean...the same treatment of leather can be found on the sides of M35 and M37 mapcases...
    Thanks
