1972 was right at the high point for Roy Baker's Original Pancake Holster line. Baker is generally credited with the pancake concept; many other in the business (including me) followed along, some with copies and others with added innovations. Watch eBay for a few months and you should be able to score an original Roy's Pancake holster that would match your revolver's vintage perfectly.

Don't overlook the Tom Threepersons' style holster, which was very popular from about 1920 through about 1980 or so. Originally made by S.D. Myres Saddlery, most of the major holster makers offered some variation of the Threepersons design over the years including your revolver. Very good design for range and field use, and not bad for occasional discreet carry.

Best regards.

The Bianchi Model 27 is a period duty holster for the 67....
Bianchi, again, had the model 3 for off duty carry. I had one of these and wish I had it back. This had the hammer shield. High ride, no strap, FAST draw! Safariland had several great holsters also. The model 29 was both a duty and sportsman holster. All of the top holster makers of this period had very, very good holsters for the 4" K frames.....Tex Shoemaker, Safety Speed, Hoyt all had great holsters in this period...

Thank for all the good suggestions, I have quite a few Tom Threeperson holsters, so I have that covered.

Don Hume 216 (?) Jordan style Border Patrol also Jay Pee, Safariland, Bucheimer, S&W factory logo (some were Gould and Goodrich before S&W bought them), Tex Shoemaker, Triple K, Safety Speed or other steel shank, safety strap or thumb break, forward cant duty holster that's sized right

Expect a 2" belt slot so plan on a little slop in your rig unless you use a 2" gunbelt.

Ebay "k frame duty holster". I'd ask if the snap was still in good shape before I bought.

It looks like a copy of other holsters I have seen, maybe Lewis and Bucheimer ?

The Hoyt break fronts were very popular with police departments during that timeframe. I think I saw a nice one for a K frame on the WTS pages recently. Good shootin’,

Here is a Hoyt crossdraw. Breaks out the back, which is the
front when in crossdraw position.

My first duty holster in 1977 was a Bianchi version of the Burns and Martin front break with the retention strap around the front of the holster, rather than over the hammer. I carried a 4" Model 28 in it, but there were some of my partners that carried 19s 66s and 15s in them, if I recall correctly. I remember I ran into a Texas Ranger one night who was in town on vacation. While we were talking, he said, "I see ya'll have them fancy California front openers. How do you like it?"

That Bianchi you mentioned is the model 27 shown at left below.
2nd from left is the model 27 with my model 19 S&W on board.
The belt is also by Bianchi.

Agree that EBay is a great place to find vintage holsters. This S&W branded holster would be great for your Model 67. Another EBay find. Good luck!

A Jordan style was the deal in 1975, unless you were an old timer, then you had a swivel holster. A real show off had a basket weave holster, belt and cuff case.

Did you know that Hoyts can be dated? That almost careless style of basket stamping is found on the earliest Hoyts by Dick Hoyt himself. Simplest way is by the mark on the backside, because his operation was moved many times and we can roughly date those moves (FYI he was originally from KS and was a fighter pilot in 1917-18; no parachutes then!):

Los Angeles CA 1935 until . . .
El Monte CA 1940 until . . .
Costa Mesa Ca 1960 until . . .
Coupeville WA 1980 until closing 2000

Yep, that's the one. Started with dump pouches for a short time before getting speed loaders.
