This belt is from the 1974 season and has the correct D stamp within a circle for that year. This is a classic and very chic Hermes belt. It is made of a deep brown crocodile leather and has the signature H buckle. The skin is still very supple, soft and shows no signs of dryness or cracks. The buckle is a gold metal and these would have been gold plated during this time period. To close the belt it just hooks into please under the buckle. Belts from this time period are quite rare and this one is in excellent condition with just a hint of natural patina to the hardware and leather. This just adds to its vintage appeal. Excellent condition
The belt is just under 32" from end to end x 75" wide. The buckle is 1.5" x 1". The belt is currently set to fit a about a 28" waist and can be adjusted up or down accordingly. There is only one hole to hook the buckle into and the size is all done by adjusting the other end. All appropriate stamps and blind marks. Authentic and appears to have been worn very little. There is a bit of a bend to the leather that is turned under the buckle from being adjusted to different lengths over the years but the leather is not cracked.
This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
