The belt plate has two sets of horizontal lines set 10mm apart and cross hatching lines beneath the lower pair of lines. The plate end towards the strap has two concave arches at the belt joint. The pin is broken near the buckle. The solo rivet remains intact. There is one pin for a belt mount which is missing and several holes to indicate further mounts were present when in use.
