Early 1930s money belt with Kwik Zipper

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271662212583
This vintage money belt was made in the early 1930s. It is made of leather, with a snapped pocket, and a larger zipped pouch. The zipper is an early 1930s Kwik, made under patents no. 1814244, granted in 1931, patent no. 1752111, granted in 1930 and 1761385, granted in 1930. The snap is an early United Carr and the buckle has a nicely detailed design. The puller on the pin-lock Kwik is obviously influenced by Hookless zips of the same era.
