Got this mint R.M.CO.1943 pistol belt. Difficult to say if it is one of those coming from URSS or not... Anyhow: brand new and really fresh and nice as you can see. The strange thing I noticed on it is that the male portion of the buckle is alloy, while the female portion is blackened brass. Do you know if this mismatch could be a normal procedure, maybe done to exaust the remaining stock of old buckles parts when they turned up to new materials? I remember an old post about this question but I can't find it anymore...
