SALE UXG-0179-JEG MINT WWI Mills M1917 Enlisted Mans Medic Belt (Rimmed Eagle Snaps)

Quantity: 
New Price:  $199.95
Was:  $299.95
 
Item #29904

This is a second pattern enlistedmans medic belt manufactured by Mills. This belt has the pre/early-war rimmed eagle snaps instead of the first pattern lift-the-dots. Production of these Mills belts began in 1917 and another contract for the Long company was placed in early to mid 1918. At this time, Mills switched over from the lift-the-dots they had been using to the earlier rimmed eagle snaps. The exact reason for this change is unknown, but it is hypothesized that it was intended to keep different manufacturers distinguishable. These belts are similar to the Mills cartridge belts in construction but these belts have larger pockets to accommodate bandages and field dressings instead of ammunition. A full description of contents and supplies can be found here.


This particular belt is manufactured by Mills and is dated September of 1918. It is in mint condition with no corrosion on snaps, holes, or buckles. Stamping is clear and discernible. This belt would make a fine addition to any collection.
