AIRCORPCAMO WWII Replica M1937 Belt stamped US JQMD 1943
The M1937 khaki web belt was used by Army enlisted men with all types of trousers. It had an open-face buckle of blackened metal, a tip of the same metal, was 1.25 in. wide, and lengths up to 60" can be cut to fit. The open face design was abandoned after WW II and the enlisted men used the same solid buckle as the officers after the mid-1950s.
Belts made during World War II are ink stamped with markings, In example; "U.S.", then "JQMD 1943" in smaller letters, then the size printed at a right angle next to buckle (see photo, left). Of course the date and size will vary with the belt.
The AIRCORPCAMO Replica is stamped with the following ink stamp which is all the same size "US JQMD 1943" and unlike the originals; no size is printed at right angle.
This belt is a replica copy from documented WWII records/artifacts, and the markings were purposely and intentionally placed and printed to prevent an attempted forgery.
The replica belts are cut in 3 sizes only, 44 inch, 54 inch, and 64 inch. The buckle must be removed to shorten belt by cutting/removing material. No warranty is maintained to cover you cutting off the belt tip. A new belt tip is $0.99 and can be self installed.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Reenactors should remember, (especially early war impressions) most of the gear would either be WW One left over or near new gear. It would not look 50 years old if it is 1937 issued in 1941.
