The blue fabric belt carries the Anson Mills marked buckle with the "NGP" designation of the National Guard of Pennsylvania on the front. The belt slides are also marked as patented by Mills & Orndorff, with multiple patent dates, the latest being 1893. There are stenciled markings on the interior side of the belt. The belt itself is approximately 33 inches long in its present configuration, but could be adjusted to add about another 6 inches to the length. The belt is in excellent lightly used condition.
