Original German WWII Early Army Heer EM/NCO Black Leather Belt with Pebbled Aluminum Buckle by G.K.&R.

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice WWII German Wehrmacht (Heer) Aluminum EM/NCO's Belt Buckle (Koppelschloß) with an original black finished leather belt. The buckle is embossed with the Heer motto GOTT MIT UNS ("God (is) with us") around the Wehrmacht Reichsadler (State Eagle). Nice aluminum construction box buckle with a pebbled background. The buckle is in good condition, and is a single piece injection molded and crimped example. It does show some surface wear, common due to the softer aluminum alloy.

This buckle was originally entirely painted standard Heer gray green, and while this is almost completely gone on the front, the rear still still shows a good amount. We did find a maker mark, but it is under the adjustment claw, and there is a small G.K.&R. in very stylized Gothic Blackletter typeface. This could also be "E.K.&R.". We looked through lists of buckle makers during the war, and were not able to find a match. Definitely an interesting example!

The leather belt is in very good condition, and measures about 37.5” when fully extended. It has a lovely gloss black finish on the leather, and originally was about 5 inches longer. The adjustment tab with double rows of 5 holes had an additional row added at the end, and was restitched to a new location at some point during the war. It also features an early war aluminum securing hook, which was originally painted green like the buckle.

Overall condition is very good with an exception eye appeal and patina! Ready to research and display!
