    Default WWI Belt & Buckle with ammo pouch

    I bought this belt/buckle set that was advertised as WWII belt w/ WWI buckle. Can you comment on any of the details? The belt is faintly marked with 1917 date and some words that I will try to make out better. There are buttons attached and one that came loose - loose one SLB and an HA on back. One plain button, a button with number eight and two crown buttons. the ammo pouch is marked on back - J SIGLIE & Cie, 1915, KORNWESTHEIM SALAMANDER SCHUHFABRIKEN. The buckle has no markings - is two piece and has a tab but the tab looks "new"? There is green corrosion on buckle and belt consistent with each other. Is this all WWI and for real? Is the 8 a regiment or division number?

    Is a set like this desirable to a WWI collector?
    thanks.
    Joe

    Hi Joe, I like the belt and buckle no problem with them, I am uncomfortable with the support tab attached to the buckle, the wear and age is inconsistent with the buckle, for me the tab is a later addition, when I do not know, again mate just my opinion

    If I were to resell this set should I remove the tab or just note that it may have been added later?

    Hi Joe, the tab looks like it was added as personal prefferance by the origional owner & most likely a period tab, leave it as found imo.

    I do not think that tab of the wwi. the wear and age is inconsistent with the buckle. Tab added, probably in our time.when selling to note that the tab is added later, probably.

    adding a picture of belts manufacturer stamping after using some talc (actually corn starch) - the date is 1917 and location Mannheim but still a little tough to get other words; maybe a forum member more familiar with the manufacturers can get enough clues from the pic to fill in the blanks.
