Elephant 1911 Holster...Who made it

Guys
I just picked this up with a 1911 I bought used
Workmanship looks nice
Appears to be Elephant
Any ideas of maker?

I can't really tell from the picture, but I was thinking R Grizzle, but it doesn't look like his logo.

Looks like it was made of Shark skin to me, not Ele. I don't recognize the maker stamp, but I'm sure someone will.

It looks like maybe two different skins
Maybe shark and elephant

The workmanship looks reall good
It has a good cant

Ryan doesn’t have one on his site like it
Can find any exactly like it on line
I’m a little stumped on this one

That is shark skin on the bottom and cape buffalo on the top. The stitching should be brown. The can't is 25*. The maker is me RE Leather Holsters.

It seems you must have bought the RIA officer from Curtis that he bought that holster for. If you have any questions shoot me a pm.

That is interesting. That is a officer size holster not a commander size.

Edit: looking at that first pic I did not even notice the v-bob originally. Yeah that is not the right holster for that gun.
