This is a US Model 1912 pistol belt used during World War I. The Khaki web belt measures 42" when fully let out, accommodating up to a 40" waist. There weren't to many fat Infantrymen back then! This one was manufactured after mid 1917, as the snap for the ammunition pouch is plain instead of the earlier eagle snap. The belt has no stains, shows honest wear and all the eyelets are present. Some of them do have some verdigris, but that can cleaned up easily enough. It has no US stamp to the left of the ammo pouch snap. There is no maker mark stamped on the inside of the belt. There is a number stenciled on the inside of the belt, but it isn't legible. Stamped on the brass adjuster on the outside is, "MADE BY/MILLS WOVEN CARTRIDGE BELT CO./WORCHESTER,MASS U.S.A." Stamped on the inside portion of the adjuster is the Mills logo and PATENTED JAN 29, 1901 JULY 16, 1907. These belts are becoming harder to come by, and this one is in very good condition. This is a nice example of a Model 1912 pistol belt that saw service up to 1936.
