WWII Web Belts

I have seen pictures of the web belts used in WWII with the year dates stamped on them near the pouch snap. I haven't seen one as late as 1945. Were there such year stamps, or was that too near the end of the war for them to still be manufactured? I am looking for one in that year to go with some other things, and was wondering if such a thing does exist.

If you are referring to the M1936 pistol belt or M1923 rifle belt, both of these were made well into the 1950's. Later WW2 and beyond made belts are usually green. A 1945 date is not too hard to find and usually worth a bit less because an item made in 1945 is less likely to have been used in WW2. They are perfectly acceptable for a Korea display in any case.
