US Indian Wars M1881 Cavalry Prairie Belt

Quantity: 
Price:  $375.00
 
Item #38450

Original era manufacture. Canvas and leather construction with loops for 45 rounds of 45-70 ammunition, and mounted on the bottom is rectangular brass loop and hook for carrying a sabre.

At some point an additional loop was installed on the belt to the rear of the existing fitting, presumably to allow two leather straps to be affixed for the sabre.

The canvas portion of the belt measures 29 inches in length, with the overall length being 38 inches, as the tongue has been shortened for comfort considerations by the original owner.

Soldiers name written on the reverse of the belt, normal age and wear, no fraying to the tops of the canvas loops. A very sound example for its age.
