  1. They look to be a pair of US Gauntlets used by US mounted troops from 1884-1908. The earliest pairs were made of goatskin although similar in color to these but those are more lightweight. The other patterns were buckskin except for those made in 1903/4 which were yellow horsehide, this is what these could be but US issued gauntlets are usually stamped with the contract details and size, also the inside of the cuff is also normally a much lighter shade. These may be a private purchase pair, difficult to tell without seeing any stamps. Here is a good topic by World War One Nerd he shows th
  2. Does the belt have two pockets? If so a US Mills 1909 revolver cartridge belt.
  3. That is a very nice example, thanks for sharing. I thought I would add a couple of photos taken from a photo Album of Ohio National Guard troops on the Border 1916, the first shows an Ohio stamped dismounted model canteen, in the second photo the center officer looks to be carrying the mounted version canteen.

  4. Last but not least one of my favourite photos from my collection, again the 13th Pennsylvania. Not sure what the soldier on the left is hiding in his sweater, love his wooly chaps.
  5. I think you done well on the price. Good observation, some of these vary in that they are completed belts that later had the parts removed, others are in different stages of being completed, I expect with yours it was completed in that way with all the grommets to make a more usable belt, it might make it a slightly more desirable variation, perhaps others here have similar examples to share?
  6. I would say they are not too common but certainly not rare, although their desirability is limited. Value is a difficult one perhaps $50--$80. Maybe a search on some web sites or ebay might give a better idea of value.
  7. You have an unfinished Cartridge belt .30 Model 1912. They do show up from time to time, if you do a search I think you will see others in different stages of completion as well as finished examples. Hope this helps. Kurt.
