Title Prussian other ranks waist belt, 1896 model
Nationality German
Period 1914

This is a nice, if somewhat worn, example of a Prussian infantry/artillery enlisted man's belt, dated 1914 on the reverse of the leather by the catch (left of 2nd photo) and marked at the other end 90 for 90cms (waist size). It is also maker marked, but this is virtually illegible.

This leather has a nice waxed brown finish on the inside, but the front has the russet leather finish, now somewhat stained and polished through age and use, of the 1907 pattern leather equipment as issued to the Prussian army. The buckle is the standard Prussian buckle, a reasonable example of its type with a bit of service wear and tear.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Thank you very much for sending the order through so quickly.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
