Default MG carrying strap or Ammo Strap ?? Fleamarket Find

Hi Guys !

Got this yesterday coming directly from flea-market, unouched § uncleaned. It really not my area, so apologize my questions which will be odd for most of you

1) Is this Strap to carry the M.G. itself of ammo boxes ?
2) Is this yellow/green color the original color (DAK or trop.) or just a washed-out feldgrau color ?
3) Is this stamp with a classical 3 letter code (perhaps BDR) and "44" usual ?

Many thanks for any help you Guys may provide ! L.

It is classic belt for carrying ammo boxes. Would be unusual to find it with different markings than bdr44 Colours are different. It looks like nice, proper Tragegurt.

WW2 German Tragegurt 34 used for carrying MG ammo boxes but also sometime for carrying Lafette MG34-42 tripod when correct Lafette MG34-42 straps in leather were not available.

100% OK Tragegurt, maybe sun bleached in some degree.
