    Default Japanese Officer's Belt and Buckle

    Hey gang. Just received this from the west coast. It's an officer's belt (not sure what rank though). Does the blue help anyone in ID'ing who would have used such a belt? It's obviously an army buckle. The belt and buckle are in great shape with only one eyelet being damaged on the belt (to adjust the length).

    I do have another example on the way from Osaka, Japan....it has a red interior...again - not sure if the colours represent different ranks? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hope you guys like it. Here are the pics!
    Cheers!

    Oh....Just got some info from another collector via email. Looks like the black leather with blue felt lining is for Company grade officers. Red felt lining is for Field or General grade. I will post pics when the red lining belt and buckle arrive. They have landed in country - shouldn't be too long now! If anyone has more info, I'd be much obliged! Thanks a bunch.
    Cheers!
