MILLS TAN SINGLE LOOP .30 CALIBER CARTRIDGE BELT w/ MODEL 1886 “WHITTEMORE” PLATE – EXCELLENT SPECIMEN TO DISPLAY WITH YOUR KRAG CARBINE OR RIFLE:  This Mills .30 Caliber Single Looped Cartridge Belt is an outstanding example of one of the standard issue belts of the Spanish American War period.   

The belt is in overall excellent condition, with all fifty of the .30 caliber cartridge loops present and complete, and none show the wear commonly found to the edges.  The tan webbing retains a strong color, and the body of the belt shows no wear and no damage.  Both captive brass ends are present and firmly attached, and both are stamped with the patent information “PAT. MILLS & ORNDORFF; AUG 26:67; JULY 31:77; DEC. 28:80; MAR. 19:89; OCT 31:93” and “SEPT 11:94”.  Completing the belt is a very nice Model 1886 “Whittemore” Belt Plate which is full form with a very pleasing patina, and the two Mills Sheet Brass Sliding Keepers.    

This is an excellent specimen of one of the primary Mills looped cartridge belts which were issued during the Spanish American War, and one which would be difficult to upgrade.  This belt would be a very nice addition to your collection, and one that would display well with your Krag Carbine or Rifle.  (0216) $675
