Any carry piece WILL show wear eventually. That is pretty much unavoidable, and should not be a serious concern. I don't think leather will speed that up though. Leather WILL however conform to the gun, and to your body, and become more comfortable the more you wear it.

Back in the seventies, I owned a safariland inverted clamshell shoulder holster. I carried an s&w mod 28. At present, I'd like to find something similar for a 4" colt anaconda. Any one have any suggestions?

The acids used in leather tanning will accelerate wear and promote rust on a firearm stored for a period of time in a leather holster, especially a blued finish. On the flip side, if you take care of the weapon it's usually not an issue. Just don't store the weapon in leather.

I have always preferred the lined leather holsters over any other, and have yet to have any significant wear or rust issue.
