Fabulous old Swedish mauser ammo belt in excellent used condition. The leather is supple with no cracking or splitting and I've saddle soaped it to clean it thoroughly. With five expandable pouches and long fastening straps to allow for the expansion of each individual pouch. I believe this to be one of the very early examples as it is all hand stitched and has the piping around each pocket flap. The later ones had riveted strap loops etc. It is stamped within the leather belt with a crown and "ING.3" and also has "16" stamped in another area of the belt.
There is a white metal clip along the belt which I do not believe to be original to the belt but easily removed if required. There are two rectangular white metal loops along the top edge of the belt where the pouches are and also a clip at the end of the pouches before it runs into the belt strap. The expansion areas of each pouch are made from canvas. The pouch straps can be fastened double if the pouch is empty.

Condition wise I'd have to describe it as excellent for it's age. There is one small area where the stitching is coming undone on the reverse of the belt but this is a matter of one or two stitches and would be a cinch to do. No holes or tears visible to the leather or the canvas.

Measures approximately 45" in total length from the brass buckle to the end of the belt.
