Are you sure its not just old hardened black powder residue?? Try scrubbing with boiling water. We always used that to remove (most of) black powder residue. Then used black powder solvent to finish...

I agree that the style of the holders in Kubur's belt are different, however don't disregard that Afghanistan was (and still is) a Tribal land and that the bandoliers were hand made most likely by...

Hi Eftihis,
Not a firm ID but wool stoppers were used in bandoliers from Afghanistan. One of your pics appears to show a wool stopper.

I can not comment on actual ORIGIN, but the top pic appears to show the Turkish star and crescent (above the leather lace).

A very nice and interesting Nimcha you have there. Quite early in terms of date I would think.

Hi Ken,
Not my bag, but nice items. My guess would be Africa (somewhere) or maybe Indonesia. Unlikely to be Pasifika as they tend to have wood or bone tips. Attached is a link which may be helpful....

Hi Jeffs,
Depends on how dry the wood is after you have oiled it. I would use PVA wood glue if the wood is dry enough. Apply glue and then clamp the crack together and allow time for glue to dry....

Hi Jeffs,
I should have said that if you have a spent brass cartridge case somewhere around 303 cal, squash the open end and use that. Handy tool which I use often in this situation.
