WWI German machine gun belt

I went to the 1500 table Philadelphia gun show, what a sight!!! I bumped into this 2 piece belt which the seller, an old Marine, identified as WWI German. I got attracted by the mixture of GM, G and what looks like a Fractur “G” headstamps and the price of $10 (I am a cheap date). The seller started falling down and screaming from pain during the sale, when I offered to call an ambulance, he said it was Agent Orange from Nam, he said it affected his nerves. I know very little about Agent Orange and even less about German WWI machine guns. May someone tell me about the belt. Danke schön.


yes indeed, this is German WW1 piece of belt for MG 08 Maxim machinegun.
