BELT – ENLISTED WARTIME IN ROUGH-OUT BROWN LEATHER (EXC) WITH PRUSSIAN M15 STEEL BUCKLE WITH BLACK LEATHER TAB MAKER MARKED AND DATED 1917 (GOOD-VG). CONDITION OF BELT IS ALL THE SAME AND IT HAS BEEN TOGETHER A LONG TIME. BELT ALSO HAS A FAINT MARKING (BLACK INK HAS WORN OFF) THAT LOOKS LIKE “B.A.III/1915”. IT WAS FACTORY BLACKENED OVER AT ONE TIME (1917 REGS) BUT IS MOSTLY WORN OFF FROM USE. THEY ONLY BLACKENED THE EXTERIOR – WHICH IS THE WAY IT WAS DONE SO THE BLACK WOULD NOT WEAR OFF ON THE UNIFORM. HAS NEVER BEEN OILED OR TREATED – ORIGINAL UNTOUCHED CONDITION.
