Oddly enough, this AK belt hanger came wrapped around a British Sterling submachine gun bayonet that I acquired. It doesn't seem to match anything that I have. The belt hanger portion measures 3.625 in. (92 mm.) long by 0.625 in. (16 mm.) wide. The metal clip and D-ring are in the white, while the riveted attachment is blued. The domed rivets are chromed. The thorn is brass with a steel washer. Is this Yugoslavian, Egyptian or ??

Looks Egyptian but both Egypt and Yugoslavia made several hanger variations.

Based on the clip and the rivets, I'd say it's actually Iraqi - that seems to be the fall-back when seeing a hanger that's a mixture of Egyptian and Yugoslavian.

Thanks Chris!

The belt hanger on my Iraqi bayonet is similar, but lacks the bluing on the metal clip, has flat rivets, and a much larger D-ring. Does this one look right for Iraqi?
