Price $ 27.50

Complete set of excellent, original solid brass hardware salvaged from a demolished original early WWII US M1921 Officer's Sam Browne Belt. Set consists of everything needed to reproduce an authentic belt rig, including: brass frame double-tongue 2 1/4" buckle; brass claw-catch for buckle, 2 1/4"; brass D-ring, 7/8" (x2); brass frame buckle w/tongue, 7/8"; fastening stud for shoulder strap chape (new mfr. w/burr) (x2); securing stud for belt billet (new mfr. w/burr). Hardware has been cleaned of most verdigris, but most parts still boast a mellow patina. These belts were regulation wear for USA and USMC officers through the Interwar Period until 1942. Thereafter they were still optional, though rarely utilized. Essential, however, for that From Here to Eternity look.
