One of the finest World War I "hate" belts we've encountered, and 100% original. The 1 3/4" wide leather belt is studded with almost fifty "souvenirs" collected by its owner's enemies. These include: buttons from sappers, ordnance, and artillerymen from Germany, Britain, France, and the United States, aviator's wings, two live and two spent rounds; part of a German ring bearing a black Maltese Cross; a hat insignia, and more. Wiring on the reverse indicates that every item is original to the belt. With "Gott Mit Uns" period buckle. A great display piece!
