I'm somewhat concerned about this mark.  The Eagle/M III/8 is the Navy Acceptance Mark assigned to Mauser and would not be associated with another manufacturer such as Albrecht Kind.  Hate to say it, Asle, but I think it's a forgery and that's why it looks so clear.

Warbird,
I follow you, but i think this is real - it came with a 6. variation mauser 1934 KM
But i will check it once again.
Maybee the producer is not Akah, but i am almost shure this is not fake, and the ink stamp is not stamped post war in Norway.
Pay attention!

Confirmed!
This holster with gun has been in only one mans property after 1945. He is an old man, and just delivered all his guns to my college.
I got two of these holster, one clear stamp, and one shady and not clear.
Is it the same stamp?
I mean so, but is the last digit "8" or can it be something else?

Do you have/ or seen other pictures of this stamps used in these holsters - i would wery much like to see.
In this case i am as shure and ceartain as i can be - this is not fake!
The blued one is the unclear ink stamp...

It certainly isn't typical since Department III of the Marinewaffenamt (MWa III) had oversight of Flare Pistols, Flares to 1⅓, Pistols, Spare Parts, and General Ammunition, not Holsters or any leather products.  The correct mark would have been just the Eagle/Swastika/M Property Mark.  But it is what it is ...

I have never seen one, but there is plenty I have not seen.  Looks pretty crisp.
