This is an unusual piece… a mixed bag.  We picked this up as an original piece off one of the miliaria forums, but when it arrived it was not what it was offered as.  This belt has leather portions that are, quite recently, new made in brown leather.  The hardware on this belt is absolutely original prewar/wartime.  This includes the buckle, D-rings, and press stud.  The hardware is very interesting because it is made of steel and not brass.  Such hardware is extremely uncommon.  A great belt for a living history enthusiast, or a great place holder for someone seeking a full original, steel furniture belt.
