    As far as the belt goes you may find a way to better show the leather maker by using saddle soap
    or another means. The Buckle is made by Gustav Brehmer M4/60 , De Nazified sadly.The hook on the belt was produced by Overhoff & Cie M4/27.. Overall a nice set IMHO..Other opinions may vary...Gwar

    James, belt is a M36 standard combat belt which has been repaired at some point and additional holes added near the hook end, for what reason I do not know

    BTW in regards to leather treatment I have always used Lord Sheratons leather balsam, I have restored some really dry belts using it

    Hi James, May I suggest that the leather has been lengthened by the liberator for use, usually, as a work belt and the buckle has been defiled for a similar reason. The stiching for the tongue on the leather and the clasp hook is all by hand rather than by a cobler's sewing machine. I have never seen rivets used in this fashion. In my opinion, whilst any post war alteration must devalue the item to some extent, the leather is still a nice item and far better that the leather was lengthened rather than cut and shortened. I hope that I have not trodden on your toes. Please remember that this is just my opinion!!
    Cheers James, with regards and best wishes MR
