    I had a friend check all the badges and they are genuine... They also have indentations under them, seem to be have been there for a while. Of course it's hard to say when it was made, but price was less than the value of the badges bought separately.

    I like these 'hate' belts!

    There are a few threads about them at the bottom of this one

    Very nice. I have never owned one of these hate belts. It seem this was more popular in the Great War. I see a lot more imperial ones than WWII.

    It made me think of a WWII buddy of my father. He had a swastika flag about 5 feet x 4 feet that was covered with badges, medals and all sorts of insignia. I ended getting a bag full of stuff from him but the flag disappeared.

    Great looking souvenir belt! I have a KM example - with a heer buckle. I've shared it here at one time. It came from a vet in Nova Scotia. Shoulder boards and KM trade badges on mine.
    You have a wonderful belt there!! Congrats!

    Keep meaning to get back to this thread and post my example. They are all so different - that is what makes these belts SO cool.

    Cheers!

    At one time, it was assumed these belts were covered in bits and pieces from the enemy combatants that the owner had killed(thus the name "Hate Belts"), and this may once have actually been more fact than fiction, but once the public had a look at them and went nuts over them and wanted one for themselves, they began to be put together by guys like Flayderman and many others, to be sold to the public. The vast majority of these belts in collections today were assembled by outfits like these guys. And, as Rob said, they are all different and endlessly fascinating in any case! Very cool things and a simple and easy way to display your curios in a nice small package!
