    That small 'tag' at one end. Check it for a date and makers mark. Both should be stamped into it.

    I'd suggest you get that horrible silver paint off but you'd probably remove original paint as well. Looks like it was used as a fashion accessory !

    As for the cartridge, made by Deutsche Waffen-u Munitionsfabriken A.G., Werk Berlin-Borsigwalde. Case is brass (S*) with a batch number of 47 and a year of manufacture of 1936.

    Nice find ! If you paid less than £10 you got a good deal

    Cheers

    I have checked the end link and it looks like 1 / 40 I would have to clean it up a bit to be sure of the middle letter, the one and forty are clear.

    Paid £1.50 for the belt.
