MODEL 1910 FOUR POCKET CAVALRY .45 CALIBER REVOLVER CARTRIDGE BELT –  VERY SCARCE EAGLE SNAP BELT IN VERY NICE  CONDITION:  As issued with the Model 1909 .45 Colt Revolver, this US Army Model 1910 4 Pocket Pistol Belt with the Rimless Eagle Snaps has survived the years in very nice condition.  These early 20TH Century pocketed cartridge belts pre-date World War One and they saw extensive use along the border during the Mexican Punitive Expedition in 1916, resulting in them being far from common in any condition.   

The even green colored body of the belt shows little evidence of wear or soiling, and all of the rimless eagle snaps are functional, solidly attached, and none show any signs of the tearing that is common to find around these snaps.  All of the grommets are intact and solidly mounted in the webbing.  The pouches are intact and the puckered bottoms of the pouches are not worn.  The flaps are likewise in very good condition and show very minimal wear that is commonly seen on the upper corners of the flaps associated with wear against the rim of the cartridges.   

As documented on page 51 of Dorsey’s U.S. MARTIAL WEB BELTS AND BANDOLIERS: 1903-1981, this belt is believed to have been manufactured by the Russell Manufacturing Company, and is identified by the absence of the Mills Woven Belt Company patent information on the metal belt tip and the nickel plated metal fittings.  The belt tip is stamped “59”, most likely a unit inventory number.   

Procured in very limited numbers for a short period of time, these Model 1910 4 Pocket Belts are quite scarce, and when found, often display evidence of heavy use and wear.  This is a particularly nice specimen to add to your collection which would never need to be upgraded.
