The IBM belts were magnetic. Dictabelts were grooved. Totally different takes on a similar theme.

This looks like a cut "magnabelt" which is the magnetic version of a "dictabelt" I know IBM
made these machines to record and play them. Good luck finding a working machine. The
operative word here is "working".
