US MODEL 1910 DISMOUNTED CARTRIDGE BELT UNIT MARKED

$125.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1000-2681

Khaki woven canvas belt with 10 pockets for holding rifle ammunition. Pocket flaps are held closed by the lift-a-dot mechanism. Buckle is brass interlocking “T” shape.

The belt is made-up of three parts, left side with five pockets, right side with five pockets and a size adjustment strap attaching the two.  The left side is marked on the reverse “LONG 1-18” with a small letter “C” and the number “23.” The right side is marked on the reverse with “LONG 3-18” with a small letter “C” and the number “23.” This area also has a faint name in pencil. The reverse of the size belt is marked “LONG” over “3-18.”

The first two pockets on the right side are also marked “C” and “23.”

Canvas is very clean and in nice condition throughout. The only draw back is some imbecile wrote “3.75” in black magic marker on the reverse of the left section of the belt. This is small and is NOT visible when displayed.

Marking could be for Company C, 23rd Infantry which was part of the famous 2nd Division of the American Expeditionary Force in France. This was a regiment made up of US regulars which saw heavy action in France. [ad] [ph:m]
