Original Item: Only One Available. On January 24TH 1936 a new pattern Enlisted Men and Non-Commissioned Officer's belt buckle was officially introduced to replace the previously worn Weimar era Reichsheer buckle.

Reverse of buckle is a mirror image of obverse. Reverse with brazed buckle catch, prong bar and prongs all intact. Reverse is well marked with manufactures initials and date B&N - 43, indicating manufacture by the firm of Berg und Nolte of Ludenscheid and was made in 1943. This is a truly exceptional example.
