    Found info on the LZ markings:

    Leather issued and controlled by L.Z.St.Stgt. per holster's marking.
    L.Z.St.Stgt. = Leder-Zuweisungs-Stelle, Stuttgart = Leather Allocation District office, Stuttgart.
    The L.Z.St.Stgt. was positioned to support the Imperial Army's XII(KW) district's General Command location in Stuttgart. KW = Koeniglich Wuerttemberisch = Royal Wurttembergian

    Still looking for the makers info.

    That other stamping is going to be hard to decipher Greg. Hopefully someone here might have seen it before.

    Maybe Herman Weissenburger & Cie, Stuttgart-Cannstatt? They were an imperial retailer/supplier. I also think they made M16 helmets as well as Haubes (I think)

    Nice however to find a harness. They are not easy to come by!

    Nice seeing you on this forum too!

    (Moved thread to the correct sub-forum)
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    The only circular cartouche for a Stuttgart maker that I know of is WEIDENBACHER & CLOSS, STUTTGART.

    Difficult to match it, conclusively, to such a dark image. Try playing with the light source a little, hitting it from different angles (quite low or obliquely can be effective)..
