GU-343 WWI German "Hate Belt" Souvenir belt

Quantity: 
Price:  $324.95
 
Item #19667

WWI German "Hate Belts" Souvenir belt. So there is a lot of folklore with these belts that they made as collections of items from soldiers that you killed or considered "kills."  As with most things the simplest answer is usually the most likely.  While yes this probably did happen most of these belts should be considered souvenir belts.  Especially considering that many of these belts were being collected by Allied soldiers and with many of these belts there are both German and Allied buttons on them.  So unless they killed fellow Allied soldiers I think they were souvenirs.  This particular belt is a light brown almost unissued appearance and has 23 buttons, numbers or insignia. The belt is a size 30" to 35" with a late war painted steel belt buckle.  This belt is in nice condition and still extremely flexible.  Interesting piece and one of the first hate belts we have had in several years.
