Original Mint Unissued German WWII Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery EM/NCO Steel Belt Buckle by Josef Feix & Söhne in Wrapping

Regular price $395.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a mind unissued condition rare WWII German Kriegsmarine (Navy) EM/NCO's Belt Buckle (Koppelschloß). The Navy used the standard Wehrmacht pattern buckles, but instead of the Field Gray color used by the Heer, they usually painted them a gold color. However, this was deemed not the best color to use in Küstenartillerie (Coastal artillery) emplacements, so in 1937 they began to issue these dark blue painted steel belt buckles instead.

The Buckle design features a smooth outer field with central, high relief, embossed Wehrmacht eagle with down swept wings to slightly domed center, encompassed by an oak-leaf cluster to bottom and bears the Wehrmact motto GOTT MIT UNS, (God [is] with us), on the top. The oak-leaf cluster and script are on a ribbed background and encircled by an inner and outer simulated twisted rope border. This is a great navy blue painted steel construction box buckle with a smooth background. The buckle is in fantastic condition, still in the original paper wrapping, which has degraded a bit, and would be very difficult to improve upon.

The back of the buckle is nicely stamped with maker mark JFS for Josef Feix & Söhne of Gablonz, in the so-called Sudetenland. There is no leather tab, or any signs that it was made with one, indicating post 1941 manufactuer.

A mint unissued example of a rare Kriegsmarine buckle with an exceptional eye appeal!
