This vintage kidney belt has a classic riveted, three buckle design. The original owner has tooled in a heart in the center and sets of initials, though all the writing is now faint.
This vintage moneybelt was made during WWII for a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force. Most money-belts were constructed either like a fanny pack, with a compartment and a waist strap or like a standard trouser belt with a concealed pocket. This one is more like a motorcycle kidney belt in design (though not in thick leather), with decoratively punched and stitched RCAF flash on the back, zippered pockets on the sides and a double buckle closure up front. It has rare “Streamline” brand zippers.
