Original German WWII Heer Army Officer's Dress Brocade Belt with Buckle
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice WWII German Heer Army Officer's Bullion Dress Brocade Belt, with attached aluminum buckle. These belts were worn with the dress uniform for ceremonial occasions, and were standard issue to all officers with their dress uniform.
The belt is a die struck/stamped, aluminum alloy based construction that has been silver washed. It depicts the Wehrmacht Heer Eagle on a pebbled background that is surrounded by an oak leaf wreath that is tied together at the bottom. The buckle is attached by a double square ring to a long quality woven bright silver/aluminum construction brocade belt. The belt pattern has two horizontal green lines, and the two sliding vertical loops have the same pattern. One of these loops has an extended backing, intended to go behind the length adjustment leather tab.
The reverse is lined in a Heer Field Gray velvet type fabric, and has a leather length adjustment tab, as seen on standard leather belts. There is an aluminum claw clasp that attaches to this and hooks together with the buckle.
The belt itself measures about 43” when fully extended, and does not have any markings on the buckle or belt that we can see. The buckle is in very good shape, with minimal wear, though it does show tarnishing to the silver wash. The opposing clasp is in a bit better condition, with just a bit of wear. The belt and sliders are in very good condition, with the bullion obverse in good shape. The field gray wool fabric does show some mothing on the reverse, which is very common. The fabric on the back of the slider near the claw is almost completely missing, as shown.
Overall a very nice lightly used example of a hard to find WWII German Dress Belt, complete and ready to display!
