Original U.S. Spanish American War Regiment Marked .30-40 Krag Rifle Ammunition Belt by Mills & Orndorff
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nicely woven Spanish American War 100 round ammo belt, for the new M1892 Krag-Jørgensen Service Rifle. The design is essentially an adaptation of the earlier belt for the .45-70 government cartridges used by the Springfield Trapdoor rifle. Instead of having 50 large bullet loops, the belt has 50 double loops, each holding two rounds of ammunition.
The belt does not have a "buckle", but instead a large split loop, which is used to fasten the two ends of the belt together. The adjoiner clips are both marked PAT. MILLS & ORNDORFF and have a series of patent dates ranging from 1867-1894. All brass has a lovely aged patina. All woven cartridge loops are mostly intact and in very good shape.
There is a U.S. Regiment marking on the inside of the belt, showing the "Crossed Rifles" of an Infantry unit with a 1 above and 11 below, next to the number 18. Definitely worthy of further research!
The belt still retains the heavy brass keepers on either side, and overall is in good service used condition. A very Regiment marked modified Krag Ammo belt, ready to display with your Krag-Jørgensen rifle!
