WWII RCAF leather moneybelt

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271770019570
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.

Length (largest hole): 30-1/2″
Length (smallest hole): 28-3/4″
