    Dont know about the markings but the leather thickness looks good so probably a period belt.

    I would be abit cautious about those markings also. I would have imagined that they would have been quite Dark after 100 years but this stamping looks bright and clear-almost fresh in appearance.

    Hello,

    the leather belts for mounted personnels are very specific as they have a unique hook sewn on it , and the "buckle" also is special as it is of the open type, like the ones used by officers in ww2, but without the two claws apparent as they are behind the belt just like a standard square buckle

    The photograph does not show the details of the belt, so it is impossible to have an opinion, but the side on which the markings are should be the inside of the belt as the ww1 german belts use the "skin" side inside and the "flesh" side outside

    On ww2 german belts, it is the contrary

    Hello,

    this belt is definitely not a cavalry belt, but in the best case a ww2 standard infantry belt with false ulan markings and missing the hook and the leather tongue on which the buckle is affixed

    WW1 leather belts are most of the time dye struck marked for the maker's name and date of manufacture on the inside of the belt. The regimental markings are usually ink stamped inside the belt, not struck like for metal parts and not mentionning regiment and year
