Military issue belts tend to come in two varieties, with the first being ornate "parade" style belts that are usually made from leather with elaborate belt buckles. For the times that soldiers are not on parade, they are issued what amounts to regular non-dress belts that would be similar to what a civilian would wear. During the past few decades these non-parade belts tended to feature a buckle that would symbolize the belt being part of an official military uniform.
This DPRK North Korean Army Belt would definitely qualify as being more along the lines of a standard military uniform belt. The olive drab canvas that was used to produce the belt features a very unique adjustment system. The belt buckle is made from a light weight aluminum type material that features the DPRK Army star on the front and is used to secure the belt. We do not know the exact model of this belt when it was issued in North Korea but the purchase documents show it was produced in the 1980s for the North Korean government.
Like similar Chinese and Vietnamese belts, the quality is about what you'd expect. Pretty lightweight canvas with an aluminum buckle. Still, it's a rare find that will compliment any collection.
