    No idea on value sorry.

    But I think it is wartime.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hey KT,

    I have seen these for sale for $5-$10 for reenactors. They are very common, so don't go overboard.

    Yep, that would be a Cold War era example.

    The first is older, and is attributed to 'Winchester' I believe.
    Second one - 50's/60's version - comes from 'Lake City'.
    ( These are ordnance/ammunition plants )

    Even if they were WWII, I would not spend too much
    on a bandolier. $5-$10 as ObKrieger says.........
