This belt was constructed by taking a wide strip of leather and folding the top and bottom toward the center. This gives the belt a central seam running around the inside. The belt was then sewn along this seam. The surface of the leather shows some wear, especially along the edges. There is also moderate surface crackling. Attached to the belt is a single long sword drop. One end is anchored to a brass oval ring that is attached to the belt with a sewn leather tab. The opposite end of the drop has a slit and stud type keeper for attaching to a sword. This end has been attached to an adjustable brass oval that is attached to a brass slider that can be moved around the belt.

The plate on the belt is rectangular with a Gothic script “NY” at center surrounded by a wreath. The reverse of the plate has a small narrow tongue that fits into the small brass keeper perfectly. The plate and keeper have a nice matching dark patina and match the belt with wear and surface dirt. Despite the wear and the scattered surface finish loss the belt and plate are in good condition
