Military machine gun belt . These are new belts that were altered in the surplus glut of the early 1970's. Some short-sighted, old-time surplus dealer had these cut in half, buckles sewn on, and sold them as general purpose cinch straps. These are still new and have never been unrolled. The guy just pulled part of the strap out from the center, cut it and sewed on 2 buckles.110 round, 1943 dated, new.
