Loose WWII M42 Parachute Jacket Belt

Recommended Posts

Found this in a footlocker from a WWII vet's group I just purchased. Looks like the belt goes with the M42 Parachute Jacket from the pictures I have viewed. I kept digging hopping to find the jacket but no dice. Thanks for any input, Ken

I have attached some close ups of loose threads on the back of the belt where it would had been attached, and a better one of the buckle. Thanks

You have a belt but no jacket....and many collectors have jackets but no belts! I don't think you'd have any shortage of potential takers if you were ever to offer it up for sale!

I talked to the guy I bought it from and was hoping the M42 would turn up, but nothing has come of it, a lot of the items were stolen by meth-head relatives before he got it. Thanks for confirming it is the real deal. Ken

Do you still have it?

Would you consider selling it?

I´m interested if you accept paypal and ship overseas.

Regards
