    The picture quality makes it harder to figure out but my best guess it is Korean War era. It is not uncommon that salty belts had markings faded out.

    Looks like a standard US issue M-1936 pistol belt with a later war webbed buckle. It also looks like it is missing one of the slides for the male side of the belt. The buckle should be made of cast pot metal for late WW2 or Korean period belts.

    I stand corrected. It looks like the buckle is brass. The thing that concerns me is the size of the area that is stitched on the end with the snap for the .45 ammunition pouch attachment. That is quite a bit larger than I have seen before. It might be a European manufactured version of the US pistol belt. I have a similar belt that is identical to US issue but was made without US markings and was sold to me as being possibly postwar issue to the Netherlands. Hope this helps.

    Looks GI. The buckle is peculiar-- the reinforcement-shoulders are an odd feature; the '56 and '67 do not have that, nor does the WWII tropical that I own. If I were to guess, I'd say postwar, but there are certainly others who know better.

    Cheers,
