Original German WWII 1941 dated Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery EM/NCO Belt with Steel Buckle

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very good condition some what rare WWII German Kriegsmarine (Navy) EM/NCO's Belt Buckle (Koppelschloß), complete with a 1941 dated and Kriegsmarine marked leather belt. The Navy used the standard Wehrmacht pattern buckles, but instead of the Field Gray color used by the Heer, they usually painted them a gold color. However, this was deemed most likely not the best color to use in Küstenartillerie (Coastal artillery) emplacements, so in 1937 they began to issue these dark navy blue belt buckles instead.

The Buckle design features a smooth outer field with central, high relief, embossed Wehrmacht eagle with down swept wings to slightly domed center, encompassed by an oak-leaf cluster to bottom and bears the Wehrmacht motto GOTT MIT UNS, (God [is] with us), on the top. The oak-leaf cluster and script are on a ribbed background and encircled by an inner and outer simulated twisted rope border. This is a very nice navy blue painted steel construction box buckle with a smooth background. The buckle is in very good condition, with most of the original paint, and just some oxidation on the back and wear from storage. There are no markings on the buckle, and the leather tab is unfortunately missing.

The leather belt is also in very good condition, and measures about 38 inches in overall length. It is marked 98 on one end, for a length of 98cm (38.5in.), and the other end is dated 8 / 41 by the attachment clasp. Even better, it has the correct Waffen Eagle / M marking, indicating Kriegmarine acceptance!

A very nice example of a rare German WWII Leather Belt, ready to add to your collection and display!
