WW2 German Kriegsmarine Schaerpenschnalle LINE OFFICER'S UNDRESS BELT BUCKLE
On December 15, 1921 the Weimar era Reichsmarine introduced a new brocade belt and buckle which followed the basic design of the Imperial brocade belt and dress buckle but eliminated the crown and "W" monogram. During the start of WW2, the Kriegsmarine retained the Reichsmarine brocade belt and dress buckle for Line Officers. Originally the buckles were only produced with a gilt finish until 1934 when a silver version for Administrative Officials with the equivalent of Officers ranks was introduced. Made of die struck aluminum, this Line Officer Belt Buckle is in FANTASTIC condition! 98% of its original gold gilded finish, it features a high relief laurel wreath, along with a central anchor Some slight marks, scratches, and wear. No manufacture markings that I can see. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!
Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items.
Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only.
