|U.S. Officer Sam Browne Belt and Cross Strap|
U.S. Officer's Sam Browne belt with cross strap. Good average and used condition. Missing small leather slide for holding the end neatly in place. Also, leather on the cross strap starting to separate in the two layers of leather, however, still looks good when displaying on mannequin.
Additional Background: The Sam Browne belt was first approved by Pershing for American officer as a rank distinction during WW1. Later utilized between WW1 and WW2 as a standard part of the Officer's uniform with limited use in 1940 when the army abandoned sabers and replaced with a cloth waistbelt that was sewn to the officer's jacket. Would go nicely with an early U.S. army uniform display.
