I picked this up today at an estate sale. R.M.CO. 1942. Khaki. Clinched steel keepers and steel tab end. Buckle, snap and grommets are brass. Is this legit? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks, Al.

It looks like a very nice original belt. What are your concerns? Congrats on the find!

Thanks DeuceGI. My concerns were about the steel keepers as opposed to brass and that the tab end was steel also. Came from the estate of a WW2 Navy pilot.

 

Also, I've lost my link to a site that had a list of WW2 manufacturers of web gear. This particular list showed names, what they made, approximately how many and what periods they made them. If anyone has that, I sure would appreciate a link to it. Thanks again, al.

It looks fine. If you think about it the steel hook is integral to the belt as is the half of the brass buckle that is stitched to the belt. I don't think it is unusual to have these things mixed. Certainly the cloth used in web gear is often mixed between khaki and OD in the same item.
