    Default Interesting belt repair, any ideas?

    Looks like a decent belt, not my pics. Interesting resewing of the catch (aluminum) area, looks period, thread color looks nearly as old as the belt itself so the repair/modification didn't bother me.

    Any idea on what or why this has four holes? Looks like it may be been used with a double claw buckle and then returned to a standard EM combat figuration?

    Are the holes on the front side also? Could have been riveted and has been resewn as it was period, just a thought

    You might have something there Ben ;-) No holes on the front but the holes make sense as far as a pair of rivets which would have been used if the original half moon sewing gave way. Here's a shot of the front.
