    Default Spanish American War Blue Cartridge belt

    Hello everyone,

    Recently I came across this belt in a flea market. I am pretty sure this is a Spanish American war belt for the 45-70 government. The Krag ones I know of had double loops and this one is a single. The only thing is, there is no manufacturer or marks. I picked up fairly cheap but I have no idea if this is real and what they go for in todays market.

    Prost!

    That's what I said, but there is some tarnish on it. The seller mentioned she had found it in an attic with a bunch of original Victorian outfits which she was also selling there. She did not really know what she had.

    Sure thing, it is the C type closure without a square buckle. Lemme see if I can get a picture of it open.
