9/12/18 - This is an original WW1 German Navy Belt & Buckle. The belt has black velvet interior and is in excellent condition considering its' age. There are a few chew marks and missing areas of velvet but overall this is a minor flaw. The exterior doesn't have any fraying or areas of weakness. The leather is original and in tact, and well attached. The buckle is in great shape with normal signs of aging, but no major flaws. No maker markings, but we guarantee this to be original and authentic.
