Original German WWII Army Heer Belt with Steel Buckle and Two 98k Triple Pouches - dated 1942 & 1943
Original Item: Only One Set Available. This is a very nice WWII German Wehrmacht Heer (Army) EM/NCO's Steel Belt Buckle (Koppelschloß) with correct leather belt, and original WWII manufacture triple pouches for the German k98k rifle. The buckle is embossed with the Heer motto GOTT MIT UNS ("God with us") surrounding a Nazi Party Eagle. Nice fieldgrey painted steel construction box buckle with a smooth background. The buckle is in good condition, with probably about 50% of the original paint remained, and wear on the edges. There is also some oxidation where the paint has work off.
This buckle was manufactured after the leather tabs were discontinued, but it does still have a maker mark and date stamped into the back: B & N - 43. This indicates 1943 manufacture by Berg und Nolte of Lüdenscheid, a German city with a large garment accessories industry.
The belt itself measures 35” when fully extended, and is in good service worn condition. The black finish on the exterior is quite worn, but still visible, and the leather is soft, with no major cracking. The belt does appear to have been shortened at the clasp hook end, probably by about 2 inches.
The two pebble-grain leather pouches included are in good used condition, and do not have any major stitching or leather issues. The finish is somewhat worn, and they definitely show age, but they are in solid condition. One looks to originally have been brown, and then dyed black, which has faded. The internal separators are still present in all pouches, and all of the rivets and snaps are sound. Both are fitted with aluminum D-rings on the back, and aluminum rivet studs on the bottom. The brown pouch is unmarked, while the black one is marked and dated jfk / 1942 on the back, indicating manufacture by Kurt Seibel of Berlin.
This is a great chance to get an original WWII complete Heer belt with original pouches, marked and in great condition for their age.
