Hazen Loops were developed in the mid-1880's as a convenient way
for troopers to carry twenty 45 caliber cartridges using the standard issue leather belt.
They are hard to find, so the number issued was not large. Following their issue, the army
came out with the Dyer pouch and the cartridge belt which limited the need for the Hazen
Loops. In any case, they are hard to find and most of the ones found were produced at Benica
Arsenal. These are marked: U.S./ARSENAL/BENICA
