Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice 1938-dated WWII German Wehrmacht (Heer) Aluminum EM/NCO's Belt Buckle (Koppelschloß) with original 1936-dated 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 very good condition, and is a single piece cast and crimped example. This buckle was originally painted the standard Heer gray, but that is only present on the reverse now. The front has all the paint worn away, along with some of the detail in the eagle. 

The buckle itself is not maker marked, but it still retains the leather tab, which is marked:

GEBR. GLOERFELD
* 1938 *
LÜDENSCHEID

The leather tab is in very good condition, still supple with a great aged color, and fully intact stitching.

The thick leather belt is in good condition and does not appear to have had any major damage or alterations. It measures 37.5” when fully extended, the buckle end is stamped 95 on the buckle end, indicating a size of 95cm / 37.4 inches. The clip end actually still has a maker mark and date, though the maker itself cannot be quite made out. 1936 / WESTFALEN is all that we can read definitively, but any markings on these belts are rare.

The leather still retains a lot of the black finish on the outside, with the correct plain brown leather interior. It is a bit stiff, but does not have any cracks, splits, or other damge.

Overall condition is very good with an exception eye appeal. We rarely get in Heer examples in such nice shape. Ready to display!
