WW2 Russian Maxim belts


#1

Hello,
Here are three different WW2 Russian maxim belts.
Manufacturer’s markings are a number in a triangle.

Are these three belts from the same factory ? Which one ?

Are they three different factories ?

Has anyone observed other number inside a triangle on Maxim belts ?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

JFL

Nice samples. Canvas belts became very rare today in Russia and CIS countries, because a lot of them was wrote off and annihilated in 1980-1990’s.

My opinion - this belts was made by different factories. Triangles looks like acceptance mark by Russian OTK (quality (control) department).

The headstamps on the last belt (hexahedron with arrow) is Izhevsk factory acceptance mark.
I will check some data and samples of my collection and give you an answer during some days.
